Enviro Cover System by EPI Environmental Products Inc.

Intermediate Cover

Intermediate Enviro™ Cover (IEC) is designed to be placed on top of intermediate media e.g. soil which will not be in use for extended periods of time. This provides an effective impermeable and economical barrier.

An intermediate cover needs to be a durable barrier between the environment and landfill waste during these extended periods. The US EPA requires that when if using compacted earthen material, it must be placed to cover a depth of 12 inches (300 mm) to effectively control disease vectors, fires, odors, blowing litter and scavenging, to remove threats to human health and the environment.

Intermediate Enviro™ Cover film is engineered for extended cover periods of up to six months - significantly reducing the various costs associated with the thick layer of earthen material traditionally used as an intermediate landfill cover.

Enviro™ Cover provides an impermeable barrier for excellent water runoff promoting lateral drainage and effectively controlling the infiltration of precipitation into the landfill, preventing the generation of leachate and the escape of air emissions or air intrusion. 

Enviro™ Cover is mechanically destroyed by subsequent placement of waste and by stress conditions within the landfill, therefore not impeding leachate movement or bio gas collection.

Intermediate Enviro™ Cover is dark brown in color (earth tone).
