When rain falls over landfills, the water passes through the collected waste and becomes a hazardous liquid known as leachate. Left alone, this leachate will seep into the groundwater and contaminate nearby rivers, streams, and other bodies of water.
That’s why leachate diversion, storage, and treatment are required in much of the world. This process can be complicated, requires a network of hardware such as storage tanks and liquid level sensors. Level sensors for leachate storage tanks are used to monitor levels, detect leaks, and activate overflow alarms.
If you’re looking for liquid level sensors for leachate tanks or other wastewater treatment applications, SMD Fluid Controls has a number of standard and custom solutions. Read on or get in touch to learn more. (more…)
