The disposal of municipal and industrial waste in landfills is a widely used waste management practice in the United States. It has become evident during the past few years that there has been serious environmental damage and possible adverse human health effects because of improper disposal of hazardous waste in landfills. The primary objective of this research is to develop a second generation test for mobility that will more accurately and reproducibly model leachate production, for organic as well as inorganic constituents, in the previously described disposal environment. A second important objective of this research program is that the mobility test developed be compatible with subsequent biological testing.
