About this book

Increasing contamination of groundwater by industrially treated waste can represent a serious threat to prime sources of drinking water throughout the world. Containing the latest research on the risks of contamination over time, this book provides a scientific case for more sustainable landfill construction - with implications for waste management legislation as well as engineering practice.

Examining each of the main stages of landfill decomposition and using extensive real-scale testing, the book provides a new method for measuring the extent to which groundwater and surface water may safely remain in landfill and the associated risks of contamination.

The authors also offer practical suggestions for developing more sustainable and affordable waste management projects. The coverage includes: long term real-scale tests of landfills; reducing risks to groundwater from old landfills; aerobic treatment of landfill; aeration and excavation; protection of drinking water; and guidance on developing affordable waste management projects.
