Abstract

Modern technology has improved the protection of groundwater and there is a recognized need to monitor the water carefully to detect any pollution, such as that resulting from the leaching of pollutants from landfills, as soon as possible. General parameters that are routinely monitored in drinking water are not adequate to describe the pollution potential of a landfill. A complementary approach to assess the water quality of groundwater potentially polluted by a landfill is, therefore, developed. The application of this approach to a landfill near Milan is described.
