County pursues pilot project to purify landfill leachate

Email

WILLMAR –– A filter system that could clean the water that seeps out the bottom of mounds of garbage will be tested at the Kandiyohi County landfill this summer.

If the two-week test shows the water –– called leachate –– can be cleaned to meet Minnesota Pollution Control Agency standards and proves that the process will save the county money, a permanent system could be installed at the landfill.
