This report presents the results of field measurements and observations of a land treatment site which incorporates sludge generated from air pollution control scrubbers of a leather tannery operation. The waste contains a high concentration of nitrogen, and has other soil-amending qualities so that for the past 20 years, the site has received tannery wastes to improve growth of crops. These include corn, wheat, and hay. The waste also contains high concentrations of sodium, chromium and organic species. 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.
