How do they monitor a landfill after they top it?

    Landfills are monitored by both the gases they produce and by the liquid that develops in the landfill. The gases are monitored for toxicity and are either flared off or used for electricity production (another green idea!). The liquid is obtained through a piping system built into the landfill and its chemical composition is periodically monitored to assess the “healthiness” of the landfill.
