The paper describes the land treatment practices used by petroleum waste land treatment facilities in the U.S. Information obtained for 13 full-scale land treatment facilities included types of waste land treated, characterization of land treated wastes, waste application rates (loading rates), waste application frequencies, and management practices used at the treatment units. Engineering design matrices which illustrate the relationships among waste application rate, application frequency, and waste degradation rate, and the effect of these parameters on stabilized concentrations during the active life of a unit were developed.
