Abstract or Summary
  • A procedural manual for sampling and analyzing sanitary landfill leachate was designed to guide sanitarians and other public health officials in monitoring mineral and organic material drainage from landfill sources. The manual was constructed to allow flexibility of conducting analytical tests in a field or laboratory environment. Step-by-step procedures for gathering and analyzing water samples were developed to identify the types and amounts of the following chemical leachates: (1) nitrites; (2) chlorides; (3) sulfates; (4) orthophosphates; and (5) nitrates. Other tests included (I) alkalinity; (2) dissolved oxygen; (3) water hardness; and (4) pH value. Public Health Service and Environmental Protection Agency water standards and criteria were included in the manual for analytical result comparison and determination of potential hazards to mankind. A six-month study was conducted to evaluate the sampling and analytical sections of this manual. Control and experimental sampling stations were established along a water source (a creek) tangent to a sanitary landfill. Weekly water sample collections and analyses were conducted. A portable Hach Kit was used to perform all tests. Test results were recorded on data forms for future analysis and evaluation. The leachate analysis manual was found to be adaptable and usable when testing water quality in a field environment. Manual procedures provided step-by-step guidance in sampling and analyzing leachates from sanitary landfills.
