Innovative solutions for final closure of municipal waste and mine waste sites.

DRI is a leader in the field of waste containment research and design and is a key institution in the USEPA’s Alternative Cover Assessment Program (ACAP). Visit the Web site for more information and publications from the ACAP research program.

Water balance covers (often called alternative or ET covers) offer the opportunity for excellent performance, reduced maintenance costs and better end land use. Construction costs are often much less than for conventional designs.
