This research project was aimed toward development of procedures by which to evaluate the potential for groundwater contamination by hazardous industrial wastes disposed of on land. Studies were conducted to describe the attenuative properties of the soil, soil permeability, and the effects of a number of common components of hazardous wastes on the characteristics of soils and standard clays. This study represents the first systematic effort to determine the effects of bulk organic solvents and solvent/water mixtures on the characteristics of clays. An attempt was also made to develop a model to predict the potential impact on groundwater quality that may result when a particular type of hazardous waste is disposed of onto a particular type of land or remolded clay barrier (liner).
