This report presents the results of field measurements and observations of a land treatment site operated for disposal of petroleum refinery waste sludges. The waste, principally API separator bottoms, was land treated in an area long used for waste disposal. The site was sampled once, and observations were made on the type and amount of waste handled, site characteristics, and management procedures for waste application and monitoring. Organic and inorganic analyses were conducted on the waste and soil/waste mixture; inorganic analysis was performed on plant samples.
