 Notes
Abstract: A high concentration of iron is a concern for public welfare and ecosystem vitality. This project focused on characterizing the role of biotic and abiotic factors in mobilizing iron in the soil under different landfill leachate conditions. Batch tests revealed that biological activity produced the highest elevation of iron. However, even a minor chemical disequilibrium was enough to bring the level of iron past secondary drinking water standards. The results of this research can help landfill site managers combat the problem of elevated iron concentrations. This is of special concern in Florida because the landfills are not the direct source of the iron, but they are still penalized for the iron release detected in monitoring sites.
