<p>The presence of dumping grounds in highly urbanized environment directly results into health hazards for the people residing in the surrounding areas. In the past years, these open dumps have become a threat to the local hydrogeology. Groundwater contamination ...
Reference: International Journal of Applied Environmental Sciences ISSN 0973-6077 Volume 12, Number 11 (2017), pp. 1969-1991
<p>Leachate pollution index (LPI) value can be used as a tool to assess the leachate pollution potential of landfill sites particularly at places where there is a high risk of leachate migration and pollution of groundwater and thus can help to take necessary ...
Reference: International Journal of Innovative Research in Science, Engineering and Technology Vol. 3, Issue 1, January 2014
<p>Leachate pollution index (LPI) provides an overall pollution potential of a landfill site. In this paper, the concept of LPI is described in brief and stepwise procedure to calculate the LPI of a landfill is explained using data from municipal landfill ...
Reference: International Journal of Science, Environment and Technology, Vol. 3, No 2, 2014, 444 – 457
<p>Groundwater contamination due to municipal landfill sites is a threat to ground water integrity. This current research characterised the heavy metals in leachate from Soluos dumpsite in Lagos, Nigeria and assessed the groundwater quality at different distances ...
Reference: Greener Journal of Science, Engineering and Technology Research ISSN: 2276-7835 Vol. 3 (2), pp. 042-061, February 2013.
<p>A technique to quantify the leachate pollution potential of solid waste landfills on a comparative scale using an index known as the leachate pollution index (LPI) developed. The LPI is a quantitative tool by which the leachate pollution data of the landfill ...

<p>Waste is discarded materials of no further use to the owners and the pattern of its generation is a function of the level of urbanization, industrialization and economic status of society. The most convenient strategy of solid waste disposal is landfill ...
Reference: International Journal of Applied Science and Technology Vol. 2 No. 5; May 2012
<p>The present paper focuses on iron metals adsorption in leachate. The results of this study indicated that the biomass generated from the laboratory experiments could be used, before discarding, to remove iron from leachate which is one of the main problems ...

Physico-chemical and microbiological parameters were analyzed in leachate and groundwater samples obtained at different locations adjacent to a municipal solid waste landfill in order to assess the impact of leachate percolation on groundwater quality.
Reference: African Journal of Environmental Science and Technology Vol. 5(11), pp. 933-940, November 2011
The use of fabricated geomembranes can facilitate installation of a containment system, closure cell, final cover system, sports turf barrier, floating cover, e.g., over a leachate pond to reduce precipitation and leachate volume, pond liners, e.g., stormwater ...
