Leachate System Disposal Improvements
Did you know?
Leachate is liquids present in disposed waste in a landfill, or rainwater that infiltrates through a landfill’s cover. Given the chemical and analytical make-up of landfill leachate, it cannot be discharged to a natural waterway (stream, river, lake, etc.). Champ Landfill has a direct discharge of landfill leachate to the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD). MSD both regulates and treats St. Louis’ sewage in a safe and responsible manner before returning the clean water to surrounding waterways.
