Exploring the PFAS-Landfill Connection

“Landfills make toxic liquid hazardous to drinking water” said The Guardian in a recent article, which covered the “forever chemicals” Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). These chemicals are resistant to degradation, and the Guardian berated the Environment Agency for not knowing which landfills contained them.

That landfills contain hazardous leachate is nothing new, and that is why modern facilities have complex engineered lining systems to manage risk to the environment. While PFAS are currently first and foremost among the emerging chemicals of concern to the environment industry, the fact that they are present in leachate is not a surprise.

Is time-lag a drag for your nutrient neutrality assessment?

We can help developers achieve nutrient neutrality, by assessing the timelag between reducing nutrient loading and the impact reaching the water environment. Development achieves nutrient neutrality when the nutrient load created through additional wastewater (including surface water) from the development is mitigated. By designing development alongside suitable mitigation measures, additional nutrient loads can often be avoided or mitigated. This approach is called ‘nutrient neutrality’ or ‘nutrient offsetting’. It essentially allows developments to be permitted without impacting on the condition of protected sites.
