“Leachate” is the liquid residue from landfills. The Memphremagog Watershed Association (MWA) invited members of the public curious to know more about leachate management practices to join a free, online Leachate Symposium, Monday Jan. 31 from 7-9 p.m.
The MWA promises an informative and technical discussion offering unbiased and accurate information for the public. The Vermont-based not-for-profit notes that leachate and its treat-ment within the Memphremagog watershed has been a hot topic on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border.
The expert panel and Q&A will be free and open to the public via Zoom with moderation by a professional facilitator. Pre-registration is required. Visit the Events sections of www.mwavt.org to sign up.
“MWA understands that leachate is a fact of landfills and hopes that by informing the public, rational and thoughtful discussions can result between all parties,” states Mary Pat Goulding, ex-officio board member. “This is not a topic unique to our location, and we hope to gain some insight from others across the country and the world with this symposium.”
