Multi-layered surface covering systems are a common part of waste site containment. Their main purpose is to reduce the amount of infiltration water. The estimations of the amount of seepage reduction that can be achieved is mainly based on theoretical assumptions. In order to get realistic readings of the actual amount of seepage through covering systems a test area had been constructed on top of the Dreieich-Buchschlag landfill, which is situated 5 km south of Frankfurt am Main, West Germany.
