ABSTRACT
When designing a landfill, it is necessary first correctly define the impacts of deposited waste on the environment. Each landfill site is exposed exposure to rainfall. The principle is, these waters promptly lead away from the landfill and reduce their
influence to sealing. The purpose of the water management of landfill is preventing
discharge of polluted waters, capture them and dispose them. Quantity of leachate is a critical parameter in the design of landfill construction. Created amount of leachate
influences the way how to capture, collect and process the leachate. This study aims to investigate water management in the open MSW landfill in Zohor. This article presents the estimate of the quantity of leachate in the landfill body by means of the HELP model. In resolving that issue, it´s important to design optimal water regime of landfill order to ensure the elimination of potential environmental pollution.
