The U.S. Department of Interior, Office of Water Resources Research has awarded the University of Notre Dame $94,580 to support a two-year study on the effect of sanitary landfills on groundwater quality. The study will be conducted by Philip C. Singer, Assistant Professor of civil engineering.

Titled ‘Hydrogeologic Factors Involved in Predicting the Effects of Sanitary Landfill Operations On Ground Water Quality,’ the study is expected to provide guidlines for the design of landfills that will have minimal effects on the quality of well water.
