97-1-21 Ecological risks reduction for landfills through isolation with contaminated dredge spoil from the same area

Programme: NOBIS
Research period: 1995-2000
Key question / Key goal: By setting up and monitoring a pilot site at Ilperveld it can be investigated whether sustainable isolation of landfills in wet peatlands can be achieved by covering it with contaminated dredge spoil from the same area; a method which does credit to the ecological function of the soil and groundwater and avoids unacceptable risks for the ditches.
Kind of study:
