Problem Description / Relevance to Water Security:
Leachate is the liquid generated in landfills as a result of dumping the solid waste. It consists of the juice resulting from the moisture contained in the solid waste plus the rainwater that penetrates through the solid waste matrix. Al-Akeeder landfill is unsanitary landfill that does not contain leachate control and management system. Therefore, there is a chance that leachate which has a high contamination potential can reach to both surface and groundwater bodies and rendering them contaminated.
