(a) The conventional subsurface drain receives recharges from the stream as well as the leachate plume resulting in larger collection and treatment requirements.

The spacing between two parallel relief drains should be selected so that their combined drawdown is adequate to lower the water table beneath the waste. The minimum spacing, however, is often imposed by the boundaries of the waste material. The drain spacing depends on the hydraulic conductivity of the aquifer, the depth of the impermeable layer beneath the drain, the cross-sectional area of the drain, the water level in the drain, and precipitation and other sources of recharge. The spacing between two parallel drains resting on an impermeable barrier can be calculated with the use of the Wasseling (1973) equation as
