Material stored at solid waste landfill is isolated from the environment by sealing layer which can be HDPE or LDPE or even PVC geomembrane. If such geomembrane leaks, the contaminant from landfill is spreading in direction of the groundwater flow. This way it can reach long distance and contaminate the environment for a long time. Such contamination can cause health problems not just to people living in near vicinity of the landfill.
For that purpose we have developed permanent monitoring system SENSOR DDS® LMS which warns us when a leak in geomembrane occurs so it can be repaired before any harm to the environment is done.
