Estimation of Infiltration Rates from a Landfill
The Landfill Source Model (LSM) provides a physically-based, computationally efficient estimate of leachate emanating from a landfill. The model is PC-based and simulates a number of surface...

Leachate Flow Through Landfills
The problem of estimating the amount of leachate generated in a landfill site is of significance in the assessment of potential environmental impacts. Although there are a variety of regulations...

Reliability of Compacted Soil Liners
Determination of transport times of contaminants through a soil liner is hindered by the inherent spatial variability of the hydraulic conductivity of compacted soil. The existence of...

Leachate Migration from a Solid Waste Disposal Facility Near Biscayne National Park, South Florida (abstract)s
Leachate from the Dade County Solid Waste Disposal Facility (SWDF) is migrating to the east (seaward) and to the south from the currently active disposal cell. Water levels and ground-water...

Effect of Permeameter and Leachate on a Clay Liner
Hydraulic conductivity tests were performed on a natural clay liner material using leachate from an active Type II landfill. Comparative tests were conducted using flexible wall permeameters,...

A Large-Scale Groundwater Transport and Dispersion Test: The First 1000 Days
TVA is conducting a large-scale field experiment to quantify the groundwater transport and dispersion of leachates from solid disposal facilities. This project is an integral part of the...

Modeling Coal Pile Leachate - A Case Study
Ground water transport of coal leachate from an existing unlined coal storage pile was modeled using the USGS 'Computer Model of Two-Dimensional Solute Transport and Dispersion...

Testing of Permeable Materials for Retaining Contaminants in Subsurface Leachates
The use of a permeable, retentive treatment system could remove both organic and inorganic contaminants while still allowing flow. A testing procedure for determining the amounts of priority...

Evaluation of Landfill Leachate Recirculation
The effectiveness of leachate recycle as a leachate management technique has been evaluated at a landfill in central Pennsylvania where recirculation has been practiced for seven years....

Biological Removal of Low Levels of Chlordane
This study investigated the removal of chlordane from a synthetic hazardous waste landfill leachate with chlordane as the only hazardous material. The chlordane concentrations investigated...

Codisposal of Low-Level Radioactive Cobalt Within Sanitary Landfills
The potential of resolubilization of radioactive cobalt from cobalt sulfide by humic substances present in landfill leachate was investigated. Equilibrium and kinetic studies on the potential...

Impoundment Design for Precious Metal Tailings
An engineering study and design of impoundments for the disposal of mill tailings in central Nevada is presented. Mill process waste is generated as flotation tailings and cyanide residue....

Variable Leachate Treatment System: A Cast Study
This paper explores the experience of the authors in collecting data and designing leachate collection and treatment facilities at municipal sanitary landfills over the last several years....

Evaluation of PVC Bottom Linear From an Existing Landfill Located in a Subtropical Climate
Remedial action to curtail leachate seepage on a sanitary landfill located in a subtropical climate included the attachment of new PVC liner to an existing 20 mil PVC liner which has been...

Hydrogeologic Controls on Leachate Migration
The Brown Station Road Landfill is a municipal solid waste disposal site operated by Prince George's County, Maryland. The work described herein was conducted as part of a...

Modeling Aquifer Sensitivity and Leachate Controls
This paper investigates the transport of waste leachate from a leaky containment facility using the computer model of Two-Dimensional Solute Transport and Dispersion in Ground Water developed...

Landfill Liner Hydraulics for Microcomputers
Two different models are presented for the study of sloping bottom liners for landfills. The first is based on the assumption that the leachate volume is uniformly distributed over the...
