Abstract

Solid municipal waste disposal site „Duplja“ is situated close to the city of Novi Vinodolski and only 4,9 km air distance from water source „Novljanska Žrnovnica“, which represents the major source of drinking water in the Croatian coastal region. Drainage basin of „Novljanska Žrnovnica“ covers a vast area from Lič polje in Gorski kotar, in the northwest to the mountain range Velika Kapela in the north and northeast, including also Gacka and Lika river basins. The solid municipal waste disposal site is located in karst terrain and on it mixed municipal waste has been disposed since 1968. Considering its location on the border of third water protection zone of „Novljanska Žrnovnica", it was necessary to carry out landfill remediation, whose first phase was completed in 2007. The goal of this study is to determine, using geochemical and bacteriological methods of analysis of leachate from the landfill lagoon, water from water sources of „Novljanska Žrnovnica“ and Gacka river, the impact of the landfill on water sources and also with analysis of soil on whole environment in the nearby area of the landfill.
