Leachate Management

Collection. Control. Compliance.

Proven performance in landfill engineering and leachate collection and treatment system design is what our technical staff and management team will bring to your leachate management project.  Our EARTHRES team has a wealth of experience in the planning, design, permitting, construction, and operation of leachate management facilities for landfills, transfer stations, recycling centers, biogas use, composting, and waste-processing / conversion operations.

Leachate Treatment PlantCoupled with outstanding process control capabilities, extensive construction experience and centralized location of our project team location, this equates to enhanced constructability, concise and detailed drawings, and effective construction quality assurance on your leachate management project.

Leachate Treatment Technology

Leachate needs to be properly managed for compliance with local water quality and environmental protection regulations.  Whether for a new facility, replacement/upgrade of an old system, or modification due to changing leachate parameters or discharge criteria, EARTHRES has the capabilities and experience to properly evaluate your site and partner with you to find the appropriate solution.  Typical services include existing conditions assessment and review of leachate characteristics, treatability alternatives analysis, bench and/or pilot testing, concept designs and cost analyses, effluent reuse evaluations, regulatory permitting, engineering design and construction bid documents, construction quality assurance, and plant start-up support.  We routinely work with facilities to reduce surcharges through the implementation of cost-effective process modifications and help facilities optimize and troubleshoot their processes. Our extensive landfill design experience also supports the implementation of leachate minimization strategies, and the design of collection/conveyance and storage systems.
