    Abstract

    The closing of landfills has become commonplace. In many instances these closed facilities are desirable building sites because of close proximity to urban areas. Much of the subsurface investigation for foundation design parameters in landfills is more difficult and more expensive than for conventional sites underlain by soil or rock. A subsurface investigation of one particular landfill site is presented and discussed. The results obtained guide the decision making process for both further investigation and foundation type selection. The purpose of the paper is to inform the practicing engineer of one approach to the evaluation of geotechnical considerations of a landfill site.
