I vote for 'E'.

(A) The ability to predict the volume of escaping landfill leachate would help solve the disposal problem. cannot be inferred
(B) If any water permeates a landfill, leachate will escape into the environment. "If and only if the landfill's capacity to hold liquids is exceeded does the leachates escape into the environment..."
(C) No sewage treatment plants are capable of handling leachate."not all sewage plants are capable of handling..."
(D) Some landfill leachate is send to sewage treatment plants that are incapable of handling it. Most landfill leachate is send directly to sewage treatment plants, but not all sewage plants are capable of handling it. Here we don't know whether 'some' or 'most' .
(E) If leachate does not escape from a landfill into the environment, then the landfill's capacity to hold liquids has not been exceeded. If and only if the landfill's capacity to hold liquids is exceeded does the leachates escape into the environment

I would pick (E). The info says Leachate leaks from landfills happen ONLY when landfill capacity is exceeded. So if such a leak hasn't happened yet, then the condition that makes it happen must not have occurred yet.
