The analysis of groundwater quality around a material (solid waste) recovery facility (a case study of the Merdeka 2 material recovery facility in Depok, West Java)

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Merdeka 2 Material Recovery Facility (MRF) is an organic waste management facility located in West Java. MRF also produces leachate water which came from organic waste that could potentially pollute shallow groundwater around the facility. Purpose of this study is to obtain knowledge regarding amount of MRF's waste intake and composition, composition of leachate water that came from the waste, and the groundwater quality around MRF with parameters including pH, temperature, BOD, COD, Nitrite, Nitrate, Ammonia, KMnO4, Iron (Fe), and Fecal Coliform. Quality of the groundwater was analysed by knowing pollution rate based on pollution index and its association with distance variation from MRF. Results showed that amount waste that came to the facility is 0.954 ton/day with an average of waste volume 1449.20 l/day and consists of 93.4% organic waste and 6.4% non-organic waste. For MRF's leachate water quality showed that pH, temperature, BOD and COD parameters exceeded over required standard. Shallow groundwater around MRF showed that average rate of pH, BOD, COD, Nitrate parameters is still above required standard and other parameters average is still in required standard and there is no significant correlation between distance variation with the groundwater. It can be concluded that the pollution index of the local's shallow groundwater fall into low to mid polluted category.
