Contents Notes
"Leachate characteristics were compared for samples taken from a municipal solid waste test cell at Boone County, Kentucky, and for samples from other similar research projects. Leachate concentrations and mass removals from five test cells were compared for at least three chemical parameters. Weighted mean concentration histories were compared both graphically and with a simple mathematical description of the concentration trend over time. Cell performances were not identical, but the normalized leachate data did indicate repetitive trends and a range of performance."
