These 15 measurements of the performance of capillary barriers show that they frequently leaked. Covers with a thin soil cover produced more leakage than those with thick soil covers. The likely cause of leakage in many cases appears to be soil compaction that may have restricted root growth. The single test with adequate soil density and a thick soil cover allowed no leakage. 2â•…Bare Soil Surface Nyhan et al.

After 4 years of service, they observed numerous cracks in the clay barrier and roots growing in the cracks. Leakage through the cover was small prior to a short drought during the first year of service, but increased substantially after the drought. The authors concluded that soil drying during the drought created the dense network of soil cracks. Leakage through the cover was increasing at the end of the test.
