Evaluation of landfill site choice using AHP and GIS case study: Oum Azza, morocco
Laboratory of Applied Geophysics, Geotechnics and Geology of Engineers and Environment, Mohammadia School of Engineers, Mohammed V University, Rabat, Morocco
The amount of household waste produced by the mainly urban population in Morocco continues to increase year after year. Morocco is thus confronted with the problems of storage and disposal of this waste, which are composed largely of organic matter, bio-waste. In the recent past, these wastes have been buried in wild dumps or in old quarries located in areas close to urban centers without any treatment or control. This can constitute significant risks both for public health and the environment and for the future of the socio-economic activities of the country. For which evaluating municipal landfills is vital due to the importance of health and environmental issues and the possibility of contravening environmental and engineering criteria and principles. The present research is conducted using new techniques of approach among others, the analytical hierarchy process AHP, which will allow us to weight and combine all criteria and to classify their respective weights, as well as the use of GIS which will contribute to the evaluation of these criteria in order to determine whether the choice of the current site according to the results of our study meets the requirements of a controlled landfill respecting the environment.
