Flow Investigation for Landfill Leachate
A two-dimensional unsteady-state moisture flow model has been developed in order to describe the leachate flow process in a landfill. The unsteady variation of leachate mound head has...

Orange County Florida Landfill Dilute Leachate Wetland Treatment and Restoration System
The Orange County Landfill began operation in 1971 as an EPA demonstration project for the purpose of defining landfill operations in high groundwater table areas. To prevent groundwater...

Real Time Forecast of Landfill Leachate Flow
A computer model was written to describe the generation of landfill leachate due to large precipitation events. The landfill is described as a multi-layer system, each layer having its...

Prediction of Runoff-Evapotranspiration to Estimate Leachate Generation in a Landfill
The fraction of precipitation that remains after runoff and surface water evaporation, enters into the solid waste landfill and generates leachate flow at the bottom. A part of the infiltration...

Field Investigation for Leachate Flow in a Landfill
Field investigation for leachate flow was done for the Fresh Kills landfill at Staten Island, New York. The leachate monitoring program included data collection from the field for a six...

Transport of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Through a Clay Liner
A series of tests have been performed using laboratory-scale flexible wall permeameters. A synthetic organic leachate mixture of methylene chloride, toluene, and trichloroethylene (TCE)...

Optimization Study of a Leachate Treatment System
A treatability study was conducted to evaluate the need for a metal precipitation and an ammonia stripping process in a leachate treatment system and to evaluate the biological nitrification...

Behavior of Three Organic Chemicals Passing Through Columns Packed with Sand and Silt in the Presence of Landfill Leachate
This study examines the effect of leachate on the migration of three common industrial chemicals in unsaturated flow under two sets of soil conditions: sand and sand with a layer of silt....

Evaluation of the FASTCHEM Model for Predicting Leachate Attenuation at Fossil Power Plants
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has applied the model FASTCHEM to identify retardation mechanisms and predict solute transport at two fossil power plants. FASTCHEM (acronym for fly...

Simulation of Leachate Discharge from a Small Island into a Tidal Bay
A small island in a tidal bay was considered as a potential site for depositing large volumes of excavation material from a transportation project. The island is located in the inner part...

Visualization Studies of Dense Leachate Plumes in Porous Media
In this paper, a series of flow visualization experiments investigating the behavior of dense leachate plumes are described. These experiments were performed in various flow containers...

Concentration Measurements in Dense Leachate Plumes Using a Gamma Radiation System
An automated, nonintrusive technique is discussed that determines salt concentrations in dense leachate plumes. The dense plumes were introduced from a line source into a relatively narrow...

Modeling of Reactive Chemical Transport of Leachates from a Utility Fly-Ash Disposal Site
Fly ash from fossil-fuel power plants is commonly slurried and pumped to disposal sites. The utility industry is interested in finding out whether any hazardous constituents might leach...

Leachate Flow from an Experimental Fly Ash Landfill
Combustion of coal in large-scale utility boilers produces an ash by-product which is often stored in open landfills. An experimental fly ash landfill was constructed by Pennsylvania Power...

Use of Lysimeters to Monitor a Sanitary Landfill
A vadose zone monitoring program has been developed using basin lysimeters to evaluate the environmental impacts of a sanitary waste landfill. Lysimeter systems, consisting of collection...

Characteristics of Colloids in Landfill Leachate
Leachate was collected from a municipal landfill which has been closed for about 15 years. The sample was collected (under a N2 atmosphere) only...

Anaerobic Pretreatment of a Landfill Leachate for Metals and Organics Removal

A Two-Dimensional Model for Estimating Leachate Flow in Landfills
A numerical model has been developed to compute the leachate flow from solid waste landfills in an unsteady state condition. The two-dimensional moisture flow equation along with the boundary...

Groundwater Contamination from an Unlined, Poorly Capped Landfill
This paper presents a case study of groundwater and surface water contamination from a major, unlined, and poorly capped municipal landfill located in Western Washington. The landfill...

Management of Leachate from Sanitary Landfills
Sanitary landfills remain the most common form of solid waste disposal in America. However, environmentalists are concerned about the degradation of ground water by leachate, which is...
