Summary:Clay liners have been used as a means of leachate containment at landfills in Wisconsin for over 10 years. Since 1980, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has required "collection basin lysimeters" to be installed at most clay-lined sites to measure the quality and quantity of leakage from a discrete portion of the liner. These devices were initially required to provide a method for monitoring soil moisture in the unsaturated zone beneath the clay liners because in most cases suction lysimeters had not functioned properly.—Modified journal abstract.
