Soil and water samples from several test borings and hydrological data were collected and analyzed for three flue gas cleaning sludge disposal sites in order to assess the extent of migration of pollutants into the local groundwater and the effects on surrounding soils. Physical testing of soils indicated that two major types of sites were included: one site was underlain by impermeable materials such as clay and shale; and two other sites underlain by relatively permeable silty sands and gravel with discontinuously distributed finer materials. Sludge/ash-derived constituents were found to have migrated out of the immediate area of the pit or pond at all three disposal sites degrading the quality of the local groundwater.
