Dohuk city in Iraq produces 2000 tons of solid waste per day and it is disposed in a landfill. Waste disposal is one of the biggest problems that the Dohuk city is faced, the government searched for finding the most effective waste disposal that suitable with their weather and amount of solid waste. The municipality of Dohuk found the landfill in Kashi is the solution for the solid waste problem, Kashi is region far away from the center of Dohuk by 20 km nearly; receives about 2000 tons of solid waste per day only from the center of Dohuk and Sumel. The process of landfill as we know is confined area and covered with layers of soil it is required by liner at the bottom of the pit to prevent the leachate or the liquid from solid waste to contaminate the groundwater and the soil. The objective of the manuscript is an environmental impact study on waste disposal. Landfill in Kashi has negative impact on environment such as after a while or may be now producing toxic gases which are released to the air and ground because the waste cannot rot and lead to effect on environment, organization intends to construct a leachate treatment facility to help improve the quality of life for those who live in the region and are directly affected by the effluent from the plant, through effective treatment technologies and waste-management practices. The environmental impact study focused on environmental monitoring plan which must include procedures on carrying out the necessary activities to monitor the effluent discharge such as the conditions of leachate (quantity and quality), gaseous emissions, groundwater and surface water, etc No findings are presented.
