  • In-Plane Flow of Four Geosynthetics for Landfill Drainage

    The in-plane flow behavior of four geosynthetics, including three geonets and one geocomposite, for landfill drainage applications was investigated. Laboratory testing was performed to evaluate the effect of boundary material (cover material), hydraulic gradient, applied normal compressive stress, and time on the flow rate. The boundary materials investigated were a geomembrane, geotextile, sand, ...

  • Inox in a landfill

    For collection and transport of leachate, landfill sites are using various types of pumps. Grindex electrical corrosion resistant pumps provide the volume needed where pneumatic pumps and other submersibles pumps fall short. One of the landfills in Illinois has 18 Grindex corrosion resistant pumps in operation and they now have plans to replace all remaining submersibles with Grindex INOX pumps. ...

  • Closure Options for Impoundments and Landfills

    In Kentucky, a county board votes to shut down a landfill that had long been the source of odor complaints from nearby residents. In Hawaii, residents push a city council to expedite a delayed landfill closure. Outside Beirut, Lebanon, protesters try to block trucks entering a landfill they say should have been closed a week earlier. These events, while certainly newsworthy, obscure the fact that ...

  • Landfill Leachate Sources and Treatment Options

    What is leachate? In a lab, it is any liquid that extracts solids as it passes through matter. In a landfill, it is the water that enters the facility in a number of ways, passes through waste material on contact, contains a wide range of constituents, and must be addressed with a proper operations plan. Leachate treatment options and mitigation are one of the greatest costs for landfill ...

  • Ontario Landfill Site - Case Study

    A Texas based company with waste management sites around North America have installed electrical generation plants at various locations that use methane collected from the waste. The daily operation of these sites include the management of the leachate, a liquid waste by-product of decomposition, and the collection of gas for electricity production. This is typically carried out at multiple wells ...

  • Synthetic turf system solves landfill erosion challenge

    After four years as landfill district manager for IESI Corp., Delaney Lewis was discouraged. Although one of the Louisiana landfills for which he was responsible exhibited ideal geology, the soil characteristics were not conducive to side slope maintenance. The soil of the LaSalle/Grant landfill was highly erodible, exhibited a high plasticity index and had a natural pH of 4.0. ...

  • Locating Geomembrane Liner Leaks under Waste in a Landfill

    Abstract An Electrical Leak Imaging and Monitoring (ELIM SM) survey was used to locate leaks under 2.5 meters of stabilized waste in an active geomembrane-Iined landfill. The landfill is lined with two 2-mm thick HDPE geomembranes that are separated by a geonet drainage layer. The primary liner is covered with 600 mm of drainage sand and 2.5 meters of stabilized waste for a total cover ...

  • Monitoring leachate composition at a municipal landfill site in New Delhi, India

    Most of the landfills in developing countries do not have any liner at the base, or a drainage layer or a proper top cover, which results in the potential problem of groundwater/surface water contamination due to the leachate. Hence, to decide whether the leachate is to be collected and treated, or may be allowed to discharge into the adjoining soil or public sewer or surface waterbody, it is ...

  • Use of Mathematical Models to Evaluate Management Options for Reducing PCB Bioaccumulation by Fish in Two Streams at the Neal`s Landfill Site, Bloomington, IN

    ABSTRACTNeal’s Landfill received PCB-containing wastes that originated from a Westinghouse Plant in Bloomington, IN. PCBs have been transported to the groundwater beneath the site and into two nearby streams: Conard’s Branch and Richland Creek, and consequently, PCBs have impacted the water, sediments, and fish of these streams. Remedial actions conducted at the site have included removal of ...

  • Pollution level detection in dump clay liners by hyperspectral imaging

    Landfill is the most common and cost–effective method of waste disposal, with collection and transportation accounting for 75% of the total cost. A key point in waste disposal is the picking up and the drainage of percolation fluids to limit the risk of groundwater contamination. Aim of this study was to evaluate the possibility to develop fast and reliable methods to perform an in situ ...
