Soil stabilisation

Project details
This project assessed the potential of an existing technique used for road construction and applied it to the stabilisation of highly permeable soils and subsoils for slurry and effluent storage.  This project attempted to confirm the suitability of the approach for a follow-on assessment at the field scale via construction and monitoring of a storage lagoon. This project did not identify the potential for this to be a widely adopted technique of long-term value of the dairy industry.
