PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE CONSTRUCTION OF HAZARDOUS WASTE LANDFILL IN TARNOWSKIE GÓRY (UPPER SILESIA, POLAND)

Summary
In this paper, we present problems related to the construction of hazardous waste landfill in TarnowskieGóry (Upper Silesia, Poland). Production lasting for several decades and lack of proper waste management resulted in pollution of underground water and soil in the vicinity of the Chemical Plant in TarnowskieGóry. The scale of potential hazard is enormous. Continuous leaking of highly soluble compounds of barium and boron takes place from unsecured disposal pits. This pollution reaches the major groundwater basin – MGB Gliwice 330. It has been decided that this problem of TarnowskieGóry will be solved by the construction of a disposal landfill, witch will accommodate all waste. Five sectors are planned; their total area will be 16 ha. Until 2002, first sector (KI) has been completed and is already in use.
