Explanation: the term Leachate is the equivelent translation of "chorume".
Leachate Collection & Treatment
Since opening in 1975, the sanitary landfill has accumulated over 12 million tonnes of garbage. Much of this material is wet or organic waste which decomposes over time. By-products of this decomposition process are gases, and leachate which is the liquid "garbage soup" that settles to the bottom of the landfill. Also contributing to this soup is the rainfall that percolates down through the landfilled waste.
Once these liquids, which are contained at the bottom of the landfill, build to a certain height, they must be removed and disposed of properly. The sanitary landfill was designed so that leachate could be drawn out through a series of pipes, called risers. These were installed along the sloped sides of the landfill before any waste was deposited. The leachate is pumped out into tanker trucks which then transport the liquid to a Leachate Treatment Plant. There the leachate is processed to the point where it can be put into the sanitary sewer system for further treatment at the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The $4.4 million Leachate Treatment Plant was commissioned in late 1996. It is one of the most sophisticated in Canada.
