Project: Removal of a former industrial landfill site, construction of clay cut off wall, cement stabilisation and backfill. In order to hydraulically isolate the site, a water impermeable barrier was constructed from imported clay, which was stabilised with a lime-cement mixture to meet the geotechnical requirements. A leachate lagoon was then built from site-won clay in order to store water pumped from within the excavation.
