ABSTRACT
Leachate generation inside Solid Waste Landfills and Dumpsite is regarded as a major threat to the environment that has to be managed utilizing proper disposal systems and waste management techniques. In this study, the leachate characteristics such as pH, Turbidity¸ EC, TDS, TSS, DO and Ammoniacal Nitrogen were identified and the leachate was treated with wheat husk ash to reduce the concentration of DO and Ammoniacal Nitrogen. The conditions such as contact time, adsorbent dosage and pH were varied to identify the maximum reduction in concentration. it is found that Wheat husk ash can be utilized as a low cost adsorbent which is said to be a feasible technique in treating the leachate
