EPA Method 9100:
SATURATED HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY, SATURATED LEACHATE CONDUCTIVITY, AND INTRINSIC PERMEABILITY

Summary:
This section presents methods available to hydrogeologists and and geotechnical engineers for determining the saturated hydraulic conductivity of earth materials and conductivity of soil liners to leachate.

Scope:
This method covers the determination of the hydraulic conductivity of soils by a constant-head method using a conventional permeameter. This method is recommended for disturbed coarse-grained soils. If this method is to be used for fine-grained soils, the testing time may be prohibitively long.
