    Abstract

    The PVC liner installed over Phase I of the Dyer Boulevard Landfill provides us with an opportunity to examine the material after 5+ years of exposure to landfill gas and other environmental stresses in a top cap application. Test results for samples extracted from the cap are compared to test results obtained at the time of installation, to material properties included within the original material specification, and to material properties from a ‘control’ sample of excess PVC material from this closure project kept in a warehouse since 1983/84.
