Different criteria have been used to evaluate the effectiveness of solidified hazardous wastes. From a regulatory compliance perspective, leachate testing has been most frequently required to determine the adequacy of site cleanup and potential groundwater protection. Since no one leachate test has been consistently used or universally accepted, the major leachate tests and their corresponding applications are reviewed. Ranges for key variables of these tests are presented. Then different models for evaluating effectiveness are examined. Conclusions regarding ideal leachate testing are drawn.
