MODEL INPUT AND OUTPUT FILES FOR THE SIMULATION OF TIME OF ARRIVAL OF LANDFILL LEACHATE AT THE WATER TABLE, MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE LANDFILL FACILITY, U.S. ARMY AIR DEFENSE ARTILLERY CENTER AND FORT BLISS, EL PASO COUNTY, TEXAS

By Cynthia G. Abeyta and Peter F. Frenzel

This report contains listings of model input and output files for the simulation of the time of arrival of landfill leachate at the water table from the Municipal Solid Waste Landfill Facility (MSWLF), about 10 miles northeast of downtown El Paso, Texas. This simulation was done by the U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the U.S. Department of the Army, U.S. Army Air Defense Artillery Center and Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-developed Hydrologic Evaluation of Landfill Performance (HELP) and Multimedia Exposure Assessment (MULTIMED) computer models were used to simulate the production of leachate by a landfill and transport of landfill leachate to the water table. Model input data files used with and output files generated by the HELP and MULTIMED models are provided in ASCII format on a 3.5-inch 1.44-megabyte IBM-PC compatible floppy disk.
