This study addresses the issue of groundwater resources quality affected by solid waste disposed of in the Médiouna dumping site. In this order, we applied the Driving forcePressureStateImpact Response model (DPSIR) model combined with external factors of SWOT analysis (Opportunities and Threats) to assess the environmental impact of waste from Médiouna landfill on groundwater. The analysis study revealed that the continuous demographic expansion and economic growth made solid waste a complex problem. The study highlights the urgent need for implementing new strategies and redesigning more effective, operational and realizable management projects to rehabilitate the Médiouna landfill. In addition, the integration of all stakeholders, including Médiouna residents and informal waste pickers, in the management operations is indispensable for the success of these operations. Further environmental impact assessment must be done while valuing the Médiouna dumping site by adopting landfill-mining concepts is mandatory for efficient waste conversion in Casablanca.
