The first part of this project was a laboratory column study of attenuation of pollutants in municipal solid waste landfill leachate by mixtures of sand and calcium-saturated clays. K, NH4, Mg, Si, and Fe were moderately attenuated; and the heavy metals Pb, Cd, Hg, and Zn were strongly attenuated even in columns with small amounts of clay. Abstract. Organic pollutants are considered to to constitute the major risk to the groundwater quality of old landfills. Studies at two Danish landfills indicate that natural attenuation is substantial, limiting the distribution of the organic pollutants to a few hundred meters distance from the by: 1.

The chemical attenuation of inorganic contaminants in methanogenic landfill leachate, spiked with heavy metals (Cd, Cd, Ni and Zn), by two UK clay liner materials was compared in laboratory. The migration of leachate contaminants here is substantially shallower than the hundred metres in sandstone and sandy overburden materials determined by Butler et al. (), Christensen et . For example, the Saco Municipal Landfill near Saco, Maine, a Superfund Site, has a plume of arsenic with concentrations as high as mg/L (micrograms per liter). USGS studies on the geochemistry of the leachate plume at the Saco Landfill have shown that the source of the arsenic is not the landfill, but appears to be the sediments the plume. Evaluation of the attenuating properties of selected Greek clays for toxic inorganic elements in landfill sites it is simple then with the help of Table 5 and Fig. 5 to obtain an approximate preliminary estimate of the attenuation capacities of any clay material in N.F.
