Standard Guide for Installation of Geosynthetic Clay Liners
|Publication Date:||10 March 1997|
|ICS Code (Mineral materials and products):||91.100.15|
1.1 This guide provides directions for the installation of geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) under file conditions typically present in environmental lining applications.
1.2 This guide contains general installation guidelines. It is not intended to replace project-specific installation requirements as found in the contract drawings or specifications. In the event of a conflict, the requirement of the project specifications will supersede the requirements of this guide.
1.3 This guide does not purport to establish specific procedure for all climatic, geographical, hydraulic, or topographical conditions that may exist at a site. Appropriate installation procedures under atypical field conditions should be modified as necessary to maintain the integrity of the GCL and adjacent lining system components.
1.4 Different GCLs have different materials of construction with different physical properties. The procedures contained herein, therefore, may not be universally applicable to all GCLs under all field conditions.
1.5 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
