Different analytical methods can be used to determine a specific parameter, a preliminary laboratory evaluation was made of those methods least subject to interferences. All analyses were conducted with a relatively concentrated leachate sample obtained from a lysimeter filled with milled solid waste. The results indicate that strong interferences are sometimes encountered when using colorimetric tests due principally to the color and suspended solids present in leachate. In such instances alternative methods were evaluated or recommendations were made to reduce the interfering effects. Automated chemical analysis using colorimetric methods can sometimes experience significant interferences.
