Laboratory investigations were conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of compacted clays as liner material to contain trichloroethylene (TCE) contaminated soils. Three types of clays were evaluated: Tests were conducted with water and a concentrated solution of TCE and the permeabilities were compared. The results indicated a significant decrease in permeability when the water saturated clays were exposed to TCE. Several potential factors that can cause the permeability decrease were identified and further investigations were recommended.
