Abstract: As part of the waste-research project time scales for hydraulic processes were reduced by one order of magnitude and for biological waste degradation by two orders of magnitude using optimized physical models. Extent and duration of the loads from landfills were found to be significantly higher than is assumed in the still valid after-care programs. This, in particular, concerns the long-term risk to drinking water resources. Selected investigation methods allowed to directly measure long-term effects and to test the predictions of hazards after the dismantling of real landfills.
