This report presents the results of field measurements and observations of a land treatment site for the management of secondary wastewater treatment sludge from a synthetics manufacturing plant. The waste, composed of 8.5% solids, contained a large concentration of cellulose and nitrogen in a ratio amenable for soil improvement and plant growth. It also contained large quantities of sodium, which, unless properly managed, can adversely impact the soil structure. 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.
