Top Three Approaches for Successful Leachate Treatment and Disposal
"Seeking to succeed with leachate treatment and disposal by "doing it right""
The majority of things that will be worth doing are worth doing right. Seeking to succeed with leachate treatment
and disposal is not an exception. Being well advised and working with a good plan can be important elements in your
chances for achievement or failure. If you don't do it right, the consequences are usually disastrous. You can wind
up causing pollution and facing prosecution from the local environmental protection agency, and in some cases large
fines are meted out.
Listed here are 3 of the most effective suggestions you could find that can assist you get around failure and
First, plan ahead for the times when you landfill will produce leachate.
You need to ensure that you have suitable measures in-hand BEFORE the leachate starts to collect and need leachate
treatment and disposal as it aids in averting the problem that is a reality for so many people running landfil
sites, and that is when the leachate starts to build-up it is then very often too late to start at that time with
installing the necessary leachate treatment and disposal facilities. Neglecting to have this done may mean that at
the very least very expensive tankerage removal by road will be necessary. However, for many landfill operators
even high rate tankerage removal has failed to remove the leachate fast enough to avert pollution, if there has
been no forward palnning for leachate treatment and disposal. So do not make the mistake of ignoring this crucial
The second is, operate the landfill to mimimize leachate production.
Of nearly a matching importance as planning ahead for the times when you landfill will produce leachate while
struggling with leachate treatment and disposal will probably be made much more difficult to operate the landfill
to mimimize leachate production, if the volume is large. Always, prevent run-in of surface water onto the site
during heavy rain, keep landfill cell base areas as small as possible, and cover the waste and cap it off as soon
as possible, to keep leachate volume as low as possible. I am here to inform you, you won't want to overlook this.
It can help to make the difference between a leachate treatment and disposal crisis, or a mageable leachate volume
, and everyone involved in leachate treatment and disposal wants that.
Thirdly, ensure that the leachate leachate treatment and disposal method used is reliable to avoid non-compliances
when the treated leachate effluent from the treatment plant becomes unsuitable for disposal, so obtain the best
advice and only use tried and tested leachate treatment processes.
Finally, when struggling with leachate treatment and disposal you want to be sure and not take your eye off the
ball as the landfill site grows. Always regularly monitor leachate quality in and out of the leachate treatment
plant on site to ensure that changing raw leachate quality does not take it out of the range of leachate qualities
for which the treatment plant was designed, and result in discharge consent failures. To do so can help you with
running a well organised and "good neighbor" landfill for the benefit of the community, an important part of that
is avoiding polluting the local environment. Should you not, it's possible you'll not only get prosecuted for
polluting local streams or groundwater, but not obtain permission from the local community to continue by extending
the landfill at a later date -- and I believe we could agree this wouldn't be the best thing!
As stated above, if you would like to have success at leachate treatment and disposal, make sure you steer clear of
the types of blunders that may cause you to end up causing pollution and facing prosecution from the local
environmental protection agency, and even avoid the large fines which are occasionally meted out for such
incidents. What you want is at all times to be able to manage leachate treatment and disposal to comply with the
environmental regulations which apply, and you can reach that goal by paying attention to the tips above.
