A review of the available literature on land cultivation of industrial wastewater and sludge, and municipal solid waste was conducted. This review was supplemented by field investigations at 10 operating sites, including soil and vegetation analyses. Soil is a natural environment for the inactivation and degradation of many waste materials through a variety of soil processes. Land cultivation is a disposal technique by which a waste is spread on and incorporated into the surface soil. Depending on waste characteristics, the disposal program can be either related to agriculture or solely a disposal practice. Volume 1 is a technical summary and literature review. It contains information about land cultivation practices, waste characteristics and quantities, mechanisms of waste degradation, effects on soil properties and plants, regulations, site selection, operation, environmental impact assessment, site monitoring, site conceptual design, and case study summaries. Cited are 202 references.
