Soil is important material for human life.  The problem that is often encountered with soil is soil contamination due to discharge of leachate into soil. This research wants to observe the influence of leachate viscosity on seepage using Geo-Studio Seep/W Program. The samples of leachate are leachate from ceramic industry and leachate from Suwung Disposal Site. Soil samples using silty And soil from Jalan Ida Bagus Oka, Denpasar, Bali. Seepage modeling in Geo-Studio SEEP/W is conducted on silty sand condition which flowed by pure water (without leachate), leachate from ceramic industry, and leachate from Suwung Disposal Site. Seepage modeling on Geo-Studio is conducted on saturated/unsaturated condition. The results of this research obtained the leachate viscosity is different with one another, leachate from ceramic industry obtained  0.01366741 N s/m2 viscosity and 0.002061309 N s/m2 viscosity for leachate from Suwung Disposal Site. Due to mixing soil with leachate, soil hidraulic condictivity decreased. Soil hidraulic conductivity decreases from 0.001949 cm/s to 0.0001029 cm/s. The largest of seepage discharge and seepage velocity on silty sand material from Jalan Ida bagus Oka, Denpasar through Geo-Studio Seep/W Modeling is on flowed by pure water (without leachete). Besides that, the smallest of seepage discharge and seepage velocity is on flowed by leachate from Suwung Disposal Site. The influence of seepage discharge and seepage velocity change on silty sand in Jalan Ida Bagus Oka, Denpasar due to flowed of leachate from ceramic industry and leachate from Suwung Disposal Site againts pure water seepage discharge and seepage velocity are 70,573% and 5,313%.


Keywords: viscosity, soils, leachate, seepage, saturated/unsaturated.
