Pilot project under way at landfill to test new leachate treatment
NEW LONDON — Every day thousands of gallons of putrid water laced with bacteria and nasty chemicals seep through heaps of garbage at the Kandiyohi County landfill.
Called leachate, the foul-smelling, tea-colored liquid is collected and trucked to Willmar and processed at the municipal wastewater treatment facility.
It’s a process that costs county taxpayers about $150,000 every year.
