Unformatted text preview: using HELP. In addition, once your design is complete, estimate the capital cost for the construction of the LCS. Assume that the dimensions of the cell are 200 m by 200 m (area = 1 acre). Use the following unit rates for estimating the cost. 1. Geotextile cushion layer to be placed on the geomembrane to protect the drainage material from damaging the geomembrane = $0.15/ft 2 2. LCS drainage material = $15/yd 3 as placed 3. LCS pipe (4” dia HDPE) = $2/ft installed 4. Cut/Fill the liner to slope the LCS: $5/m 2 for LCS slope < 5°; $10/m 2 for LCS slope ≥ 5° and < 10°; $20/m 2 for LCS slope ≥ 10° and < 30°; and $25/m 2 for LCS slope ≥ 30° 5. Ignore the cost of leachate sumps, riser pipes, and leachate pumps. Part B: Assume the landfill is located in Los Angeles, CA. How will it impact the capital cost of the LCS construction?...
