Soil treatment systems that are designed and managed based on a knowledge of soil-waste interactions may represent a significant technology for simultaneous treatment and ultimate disposal of selected hazardous wastes in an environmentally acceptable manner. These soil treatment systems cease operations for various reasons and undergo a 'closure process.' The process is performed to minimize the long-term migration of waste constituents from the soil treatment system. Decisions pertaining to the closure process often center around the various closure scenarios. There is currently a lack of scientifically derived fate and transport information for the wide range of hazardous chemicals for which such decisions can be made. The report presents information pertaining to the quantitative evaluation of mobility and persistence of organic and inorganic waste constituents which have accumulated over a long-term period in soil treatment systems under various closure scenarios. The information will be useful in the development of soil treatment closure decisions which will be protective of human health and the environment.
