The proposed liner system (pictured above) exceeds the State's single composite liner system requirement for a C&D landfill by employing a double composite liner system and underlying groundwater blanket drain and soil liner.  This tertiary liner/collection system far outstrips even New York State's liner and monitoring system requirements for a hazardous waste landfill under 6NYCRR Part 373.
