The West Pasco Landfill in Pasco County, Florida is permitted for six ten-acre lined ash monofil cells for the disposal of ash from the Waste Resource Recovery Plant. Two of the six monofil cells are currently in use. Rainfall entering these lined cells generates ash leachate which must be collected, treated, and disposed of to the satisfaction of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). Unusually high rainfall amounts in 1997 and 1998, combined with operational problems at the existing Leachate Management Facility (LMF), resulted in excess leachate being stored in the cells at the landfill. Considering the volume of the excess leachate stored in the cells and the treatment capacity of the LMF, evaluation of an alternate or supplemental leachate treatment and disposal method was necessary.
