    All of theses factors are important, but you did say "environmental paramiters". Ground water is super important. Under ground aquifers are a common source of drinking water for local communities and farm wells. Contamination from a landfill would be devistating to the community from increased illnesses, cancers, poor crop production, it could have all sorts of environmental impacts.
