Clients, regulators, and environmental engineers participated in the SCS December forum. Samuel Cooke, PE/chemist; Nathan Hamm, PE/landfill liquids engineer; and Monte Markley, PG/deep disposal well expert, deliver valuable information and insights in this 70-minute session. They answer your questions about how leachate treatment and disposal preplanning can uncover efficiencies and open up options for managing landfill leachate and PFAS.
You work hard to stay on top of a diverse and complex mix of leachate contaminants — heavy metals, ammonia, and biochemical oxygen demand, among them. Lately, we have even more to think about, including keeping concentrations of these contaminants within the wastewater treatment plant’s tightening discharge limits and addressing compliance pressures as the list of constituents on regulators’ radar grows.
Exploring leachate treatment options to find the most fitting and cost-effective one takes vetting by a team of experts and field experience. For SCS’s December discussion and Q&A, our panelists brought their decades of expertise helping landfills, manufacturers, and waste facilities find more options and the most sustainable solutions and practices.
