Characteristics of Raw Leachate of Jeram Sanitary Landfill
A study on the characteristics of the raw leachate of Jeram Sanitary Landfill (JSL) had been carried out for 5 months. Twenty samplings were carried out to define differences in leachate characteristics during operation on sunny and rainy days. The water quality of leachate produced by the two conditions can be compared with the quality of the design parameters of the treatment plant. During the sunny days sampling, average water quality characteristics for temperature, pH, COD, DO initial, BOD, TSS, and TDS are 28.730C, 7.35, 1168.96, 8.41, 657.55, 44.38, 938.17 mg/l, respectively. For rainy days sampling indicates that the quality of the water has improved these were in the pH, COD, DO initial, BOD, TSS, and TDS are 27.830C, 7.35, 598.54, 8.32, 318.15, 37.08, and 614.20 mg/l, respectively. In contrast, the raw leachate quality in the rainy season is much worse than in the dry season.
