SCS Leachate™

SCS clients’ are lowering leachate management costs.

SCS Leachate™ facilitates tracking leachate generation and disposal data against budgeted estimates. The application handles the input, analysis, review, and export of leachate information; specifically including liquid levels, volumes, analytical data for a given data collection point.

Collection points can be sumps, storage tanks, and discharge points including tracking the rainfall totals, monthly or over any short or long-term period, at a site.

Data analysis can include charting volumes, measuring liquid levels, and reviewing individual data points, which includes analytical data, plus aggregation and review of total volumes for a site. Functionality being added will aggregate volume information from various data collection points and will provide a site-wide volume of both generated and disposed of leachate.

SCS DataServices® users are able to evaluate liquids issues within a LFG wellfield. The module includes the functions to manage the chemistry and quantities of landfill leachate.

Data Flow – Landfill Leachate Module Example


Leachate disposal data collected in the field on pre-formatted forms uploads into the application, noting the disposal method. The system performs the following functions:

  • Query, chart, and graph leachate disposal data by site, multiple sites, or for a larger organization’s multiple locations;
  • Track and integrate rainfall amounts over short and long-term periods at sites;
  • Establish trends in a site’s leachate disposal totals using nine different parameters associated with leachate management;
  • Provide insight into leachate amounts generated site-by-site.

The resulting generation and disposal trends, especially when compared year-over-year across all disposal methods, produces information critical to determining optimal disposal options and solutions, such as:

  • Deciding how to minimize leachate costs by benchmarking against previous years, current budgets, and other sites;
  • Using the analyses as budgeting input and support for evaluation of other disposal options and leachate recirculation;
  • Optimizing treatment and disposal options when challenged with stricter wastewater treatment plant policies;
  • Using recorded and documented information assimilated for single, or multiple sites’ leachate chemistry to create what-if scenarios for various disposal options;
  • Normalizing leachate data across many sites, regardless of size, by trending gallons per landfill acre.
