As a part of remediation of closed uranium mine, "Yotsugi Mill Tailings Pond" has been remediated in Ningyo-toge Environmental Engineering Center, Japan Atomic Energy Agency. The aim of remediation is to take measures to reduce the load of water treatment and the radon exposure to humans in future, and to prevent the occurrence of relevant environmental contamination. So far, the upstream of the Pond has been covered by the multi-layered capping in which layers are set to use gravel, sand and decomposed granite soil to drain penetrated rainwater to the neighboring river. This capping system needs to be monitored on a long-term basis and to be evaluated to work as expected in advance, therefore seepage analysis and settlement analysis has carried out. As a result, Settlement of analysis was well accorded with measured value and marked change of saturation accompanied by rain was not observed in the seepage analysis.
