This report presents information on movement of selected hazardous substances in soil which can be applied to problems of selecting and operating land disposal sites for wastes containing arsenic, asbestos, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, copper, cyanide, iron, lead, mercury, selenium, and zinc. The information is based on a literature review, laboratory studies of movement of hazardous substances through soil in municipal landfill leachate, and the author's experience in soil science and waste disposal. In addition to a discussion of the soil and waste-related factors to be considered in selecting and managing disposal sites for minimum migration hazard, the report also presents general information on soils and geological materials and specific information on the chemistry of the selected hazardous substances which is relevant to an understanding of their migration in soil.
