Any substance that has undergone leaching - i.e., the dissolving out of soluble parts from, for example, ashes, ores, or other matter - by running water or other liquid through slowly; a substance subjected to the action of percolated water. The contaminated water or leachate in landfill sites is a complex, highly variable mixture, consisting of various organic and inorganic compounds and microorganisms. It is generated by precipitation or by other moisture that enters the landfill from the breakdown of organic matter or from ground water. It is generally characterized by a strong odour and dark brown colour and contains high levels of pollutants.
Liquids that have come in contact with waste. Leachate accumulates in the waste footprint of the landfill. Leachate levels within the landfill must be monitored and cannot exceed state regulatory agency established levels. Depending upon the site, there are different ways to handle collected leachate. Some of these include: Collecting it in tanks and periodically transporting it off-site for treatment and disposal; Collecting it in evaporation ponds which allow it to naturally evaporate into the air; Discharging it into the sewer system, Re-circulating it back into the landfill to aid in the biodegradation of the waste.
The contaminated liquid resulting from water seeping through a landfill or other materials. Chemicals such as fertilizer are leached from the soil when rainwater travels through the soil.
liquid that drains from the mix of fresh organic matter.
