Abstract

A portion of a slope of a subsurface waste containment cell failed. It is believed that this failure could be attributed to a sudden drawdown condition caused by the pumping of treated wastewater effluent stored inside the cell prior to construction of the permanent liner. This conclusion seems to be in agreement with the results of a stability analysis conducted utilizing post-failure slope profile data. A discussion of the analysis of the failure and the reconstruction of the slope is presented in this paper.

Failure and Reconstruction of a Waste Containment Pond Slope

A portion of a slope of a subsurface waste containment cell failed. It is believed that this failure could be attributed to a sudden drawdown condition caused by the pumping of treated wastewater effluent stored inside the cell prior to construction of the permanent liner. This conclusion seems to be in agreement with the results of a stability analysis conducted utilizing post-failure slope profile data. A discussion of the analysis of the failure and the reconstruction of the slope is presented in this paper.
