Abstract: Abstract: The Lipari Landfill, located in Mullica Hill, NJ, accepted hazardous chemical waste for most of its service life, until operations were discontinued in 1971 by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. After being designated as a federal Superfund site in 1982, a containment structure was built starting in 1983. Further remediation continued into the 1990s, including the construction of injection and extraction wells to eliminate chemical residues in the contained ground water. The water circulated through the piping network of the injection/extraction well system has been determined to be corrosive, which could lead to a premature failure of the pipe. The objective of this study was to analyze the current condition of the piping network and changes that have occurred over time, to determine the corrosion rate, and to estimate the remaining service life of the pipes. Owing to the limited amount of pipe material-loss data available, various analytical methods were used to interpret those data and develop a supportable engineering judgment. The report describes these analyses and presents the data obtained.
