The aim of this research is to prove that the soil materials from flysch deposits, which are locally available on the Istrian Peninsula at low cost, can be used as the components of the liner layers in municipal landfills. The resumption of the previous project (1995–1998) yielded new laboratory test results presented in the paper. On a particular site on the Istrian Peninsula the samples of marly mate-rial were collected and tested in the laboratory. The samples were compacted using the standard Proctor energy at the optimal water content. Permeability tests were performed in Rowe & Barden hydraulic oedometer cell. The results prove that tested compacted marly material can achieve permeability less than 1 × 10−7 cm/s.
