The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently promulgated revisions to the Solid Waste Disposal Facility Criteria under Subtitle D of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). These revisions create a need for tools to predict the performance of facilities regulated under Subtitle D. Mathematical models, based on site-specific data, provide a means to estimate the effects of a variety of designs and hydrogeologic conditions on the generation and migration of leachate at a Subtitle D facility. Leachate generation and migration are influenced by numerous interrelated physical, chemical, and biological processes that can occur during the lifetime of a waste disposal facility. Many of these processes are discussed in the report. Some processes are well understood and easily described by mathematical models. The mathematical representation of other processes is the subject of current research. The report focuses on the general state-of-the-art in modeling leachate generation and migration. Issues related to selection of models for application to specific scenarios are also discussed.
