Groundwater and Gas Monitoring ensures the identification of potential environmental impacts that may be caused by a landfill or waste facility. This includes land contamination as a result of leachate or hazardous chemicals, or the creation of hazardous atmospheres as a result of potentially toxic landfill gases, such as methane and carbon dioxide.
By monitoring groundwater and gas levels regularly and precisely, any potential issues can be detected early, and any corrective actions taken in a timely manner to ensure that the landfill or waste facility is operating safely and in compliance with environmental regulations.
At EESI, we have developed an economic and scientific method for identifying leachate breakthrough called the L/N ratio. Leachate is less saline than the natural water, but it is dominated by ammonium, sodium and potassium, while the natural water is dominated by sodium, calcium and magnesium. To highlight the breakthrough of displaced native cations and leachate breakthrough, we have derived a special ratio in-house known as the L/N ratio.
