The leachates are the main transport vector for metallic pollution from waste storage sites. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the metallic charge of the leachates of the discharge public of Sefrou’s city and draw its impact on the natural environment. The characterization of leachates of five studied stations revealed the presence of the metallic elements (Fe, Cr, Cu, Nor, Zn, Cd and Pb) which present nuisances for health and environment          

The analysis of our results shows that the decreasing order according to the metals most found in the leachate studied is as follows: Fe, Cr, Pb, Zn, Cu, Ni, Cd therefore the leachate generated by the municipal discharge of Sefrou (Middle Atlas, Morocco) are percolates transiting a metallic charge of which Iron and Chromium are the most abundant, which is in agreement with the results of characterization of other discharges of domestic waste. This characterization has also allowed us to show that the metallic composition of the leachate from this discharge is typical of a dominant domestic discharge and that it is essential to treat this highly polluted discharge in order to avoid any risk of contamination of water resources and the natural environment.
