Aggressive leachate


Pollutants contained in the waste are partly washed out over time by rainwater, posing a significant threat to groundwater and surface water. For that reason, leachate is caught in drains within the ground seal or liner, collected in wells and fed to a multistage treatment plant. To control the submersible drainage pumps, a level measuring system is needed inside the leachate well.
