This study reports the simulation technique and the visualisation of the temporal vertical mass flow and leakages in waste layers and gravel bed of a municipal solid waste fill. Visual comparison of the cumulative mass leakage with optimal leachate mass flow in each waste layer enables the negative consequence of seepage of any highly toxic leachate to be mentally comprehended. The impact of the mass leakage appears to be influenced not necessarily by the location of the seepage pore but by its volume, and also distance from the source of the solute contamination. The simulation results necessitate the need for an effective leachate monitoring system within and in the vicinity of a waste landfill. The findings will be of utmost usefulness to the stakeholders of solid waste landfill in both developed and developing countries.
