Waste managers need more land to collect city garbage. What environmental parameters should city officials investigate before purchasing the needed land? 1. Depth of groundwater and distance to local lakes, rivers, and farms 2. Land prices and the potential damage to the housing market in the area 3. The distance of the land to new construction and development 4. Costs to the city if a new landfill is not built and garbage output increases

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.
