The oil shale resources and surface stream drainage within the Green River Formation of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming are presented briefly. The aboveground retorting processes of the Bureau of Mines, Union Oil Company, and The Oil Shale Corporation are described, as are the physical and leaching characteristics of spent shale residues derived from each process. Oil shale retorting in place (in situ) is summarized. The area of major concern, stabilization of spent shale residues, is covered in detail. Other areas of environmental concern discussed are: retort waste water, process water from shale-oil upgrading, dewatering operations, mineral recovery, and contamination of groundwater by radioactivity.
