This report was prepared to guide persons responsible for disposing of oil spill debris in selecting suitable methods and sites, and in carrying out effective, environmentally safe disposal operations. Volume I is a procedures manual useful both in office and field. Topics covered include site selection and preparation, method selection, implementation of three alternative disposal methods, site monitoring requirements, and correctional measures for possible environmental problems. All available land disposal methods (other than systems employing incineration) were investigated prior to selecting the three recommended alternatives: land cultivation (also called landspreading), burial, and sanitary landfilling. An outline for a training course on oil spill debris disposal is also included.
Prepared by SCS Engineers, Long Beach, Calif., under contract no. 68-03-2200. Includes appendices and index. Issued August 1977. Includes bibliographical references (p. 83-88).
