Leachate Sampling and Analysis

To maintain sample quality, leachate samples are to be taken as close to the sump as possible.  Because of dubious results, pond and storage tank samples should be avoided.  The leachate data is to be submitted with the semi-annual monitoring report.  Leachate is to be analyzed for the Appendix I list of constituents plus the following required additional parameters: 1) biological oxygen demand (BOD), 2) chemical oxygen demand (COD), 3) phosphate, 4) nitrate, 5) sulfate, and 6) pH.  Based upon sample results, compliance history and waste screening practices, additional parameters may be required.
