Working Group on Landfill

The Working Group on Landfill (WGL) focuses on the design, construction, regulation and management of landfills, both for industrial and developing nations. Management issues include operations, closure, and post-closure issues, including ground-water monitoring and testing, leachate management, landfill gas management, as well as the quantity and quality of the wastes landfilled.
