With numerous sites contaminated with hazardous wastes that have leaked spilled into the surrounding soils, site owners are exploring for the most cost effective means of site confinement and remediation of contamination. Usually when confronted with the problem of a contaminated site, the owner has one of four options. They are cleanup of the contaminated site by treating the waste; stabilization of the waste within the contaminated soil, immobilizing the contaminant, thus reducing the risks to the surrounding environment; containing the contaminants by construction of a low permeability barrier around the site; and any combination of the above methods.
