Disposal of concentrated wastes is a problem of increasing concern. Some of the most complex wastes are those associated with petroleum. Extracting, transporting, refining, and selling of the petroleum porducts are operations with potential for polluting water. Dredging oil sludge from channels and harbors may pollute lakes and streams when the sludge is dumped back into open water. The paper discusses land spreading operations for oily waste disposal by three refineries.
