An assessment was made to evaluate production and management of leachate from municipal landfills for purposes of identifying practical information and techniques which may be useful to design engineers and site operators. Also assessed were: advantages, limitations, and comparative costs of various approaches for the estimation and mitigation of environmental and public health impacts, management options, and additional research needs on the generation, control, and monitoring of landfill leachates. Numerous mathematical models have been proposed for estimating leachate generation and are usually based on the water balance method. Several models have been proposed which are fairly successful in simulating the change in leachate strength with increasing landfill age or cummulative leachate volume. A zone of saturation monitoring program is established to give a prompt indication of groundwater contamination.
