Information is presented from characterization and laboratory treatability phases of a 3-phase study pertaining to on-site treatability potential of soils containing hazardous constituents from wood-treatment waste. Specific information includes: (1) literature assessment of soil treatability potential for wood treating chemicals; (2) sludge/soil characterization data for 8 wood treating sites; and (3) degradation/toxicity data for wood treating chemicals in soils from 4 sites. Each sludge characterized contained the PAH constituents; relative concentrations of individual compounds varied among sludges. PCP sludges contained PCP, OCCD, and traces of hepta/hexa dioxins and corresponding furans. PAH's with 2 rings generally exhibited half lives < 10 days; 3-ring PAH's generally exhibited longer half lives; less than 100 days. Four or five-ring PAH's exhibited half lives equal to or greater than 100 days.
