Summary:Approximately half of the public water supplies for Wessex are obtained from groundwater so it is imperative that the aquifers are protected from pollution from landfill. Within Wessex no aquifer protection policy as such has been developed and, tipping on aquifers is discouraged. Four examples of different types of site on aquifers are presented together with a non-aquifer site which is a contain and treat site and which might be considered by many to be the optimum type of site.—Modified journal abstract.
