Landfill regulations with respect to ending aftercare often mention that no threat to human health and the environment should remain. This statement needs to be translated into emission criteria for which compliance can be demonstrated before competent authorities can decide on ending aftercare. Various approaches are proposed or under development (Laner et al, 2012). A generic method for establishing site-specific criteria for emission to groundwater and surface water has been developed in the framework of the Dutch project ‘introduction of sustainable landfill management’.
