Abstract

This work aims to assess the environmental impact of the Mohammedia-Bensliman landfill on groundwater resources. As a result, a companion sampling of the groundwater and surface water of Ouad Nfifikh was carried out around the landfill. In addition, characterization of the pollutant load of raw leachate was also performed to better identify the potential hazard of release to the environment, in which excessive levels of chloride, BOD5, COD, nitrate, ammonium and phosphorus are present. The value of the BDO5/COD ratio which is of the order of 0.5 indicates pollution by the biodegradable materials. The pH value and the high content of bicarbonates suggest the prevalence of the acidogenic phase, which corresponds to the age of the rejection (<10 years), the high concentration of the main ions obtained (chloride, total hardness, bicarbonate) increases the Mineral content Heavy metals in the analyzed waters represent low concentrations compared to imposed standards.
