Presented ın thıs paper are the field and laboratory studies performed for the remediation of a solid waste disposal site located in Izmir, one of the major cities of Turkey.  The design studies implemented in order to eliminate the associated geoenvironmental problems involved  the determination and evaluatin of the geometrical, geotechnical and contamination data for the disposal site.  Static Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) was perfomred to determine the subsoil conditions.  Water and gas samles have been taken from various depth with the aid of a special device connected to hte penetraiton device.  Laboratory testing of the samples were made which enabled the systematic assessment of the degree of contamination.  The results of the stated field and laboratory tests have been evaluated in teh development of the remedial design project.  Hence, it is expected that the geoenvironmental effects of the solid waste disposal site will be eliminated upon the implementation of the proposed design.
