Record #126599:

Quaternary geology and waste disposal in south Norfolk, England / J.M. Gray.

Title: Quaternary geology and waste disposal in south Norfolk, England / J.M. Gray.
Author(s): Gray, J. M.
Date: 1993.
In: Quaternary Science Reviews. (1993.), Vol. 12(10) (1993)
Abstract: South Norfolk is dominated by till plain of Anglian glaciation and so there are few disused gravel pits and quarries suitable for landfilling of municipal waste. Criticisms about design and siting of new waste disposal facility were supported by findings of public enquiry and provides example of contribution that knowledge of Quaternary geology can make to planning and civil engineering problems. Problems at this particular site would be caused by fissuring in upper 7 to 8 m of Lowestoft Till and presence of sand.
