Specialized Experience

While functioning as a consulting engineer for a landfill liner design and installation, leachate was found in a newly constructed lysimeter below the newly constructed liner implying there was a leak. Several traditional leak locating tests were conducted to find the location including:

  • Electronic Leak Location Testing Survey
  • Televising the Leachate Collection Pipe
  • Flooding the Liner with Blue Dye
  • Investigate Liner for Locations of Possible Damage
  • Cut Open Geomembrane to Investigate Areas of Question

After conducting these tests, the location of the leak was still not found, but we were able to use our experience and ingenuity to locate the leak. Below is a video showing the leak after it was exposed for repair.

Whether you need help troubleshooting your landfill or need assistance with any part of landfill development ECAD has you covered.
