Solutions for Landfills
As good building land becomes increasingly scarce, the reclamation of landfills for industrial and commercial use has proven to be a viable option in many instances. Dynamic compaction and vibro replacement densify loose landfill material to limit settlement of planned structures. Remedial work includes cement grout injected to seal surface cracks. Lime/fly ash injection dewaters and stabilize slides in solid waste landfill piles before closure. Soil mixing and jet grouting fixate contaminates in situ, and construct cutoff walls for environmental remediation. Improvement by Hayward Baker has allowed construction on many landfills.
