A sludge landfill simulator program consisting of 28 lysimeters was used to evaluate sludge landfilling as a disposal option by assessing the environmental impacts on leachate composition and gas production. The disposal scenarios investigated were codisposal, refuse-only, and sludge-only. Lysimeters were housed at U.S. EPA's Test and Evaluation Facility in Cincinnati, Ohio. Thirty-four parameters were measured to document leachate and gas quality and quantity. In addition, certain lysimeters were spiked with a priority pollutant solution to investigate the generation of potentially hazardous leachate. The study presents the results of four years of research, from July 1982 to June 1986. A review of leachate and gas quality data suggests that the codisposal of sludge and refuse is a superior means of disposal.
