Summary:As a result primarily of rainfall infiltration through waste materials, all landfill sites in the United Kingdom will produce leachate. A procedure for estimating rainfall infiltration through landfill sites founded on readily and cheaply available Meteorological Office data is presented. Winter and summer operational stategies which may minimize the production of leachate are summarized. These are based on minimizing rainfall infiltration in winter months and taking up the shortfall between potential evapotranspiration and actual evapotranspiration in summer months.—Modified journal abstract.
