The report presents the results from nearfield fate studies conducted at the site in September 1987. Currently, dumping at the site is conducted under court order. Nearfield fate determinations address the horizontal and vertical behavior and movement of sludge within and immediately adjacent to the site. Nearfield fate monitoring also addresses the potential for impacts within the immediate vicinity of the site and in the short-term. This information will also be used to guide monitoring activities to assess short-term biological effects of sludge disposal.
