The Grand Agadir is confronting with huge production of solid waste. Due to the fact of changes in habits of consumption, the increase of production, and demographic evolution. This production is buried in the controlled discharge of Tamelast. This landfill faces many environmental issues. Our work aims to evaluate the environmental characteristics based on the geological and hydrogeological properties of the site of the Tamelast landfill in Grand Agadir (Morocco). To evaluate the geological and hydrogeological characteristics of the Tamelast landfill, we have generated geological, hydrogeological maps, stratigraphic vertical sections, and cross-sections of the landfill area that have been prepared for further assessment of environmental geological factors. Besides, we also focused on other measures of permeability, and field data we could define the probability and importance of contamination by leachate. The Tamelast landfill is installed on the marl-limestone and carbonate ranges of the Campanian and Maastrichtian. Geologically, the site consists essentially of carbonate deposits, limestones, and Cretaceous marls. These geological outcrops that can play the role of a potential aquifer are the fractured Campanian marl-limestone formations. These soils have a permeability of 5.10-4 to 10-3m/s and transmissivity of 10-2 to 5.10-2 m2/s.
