The report describes the results of a three-year demonstration study of the disposal of liquid sewage sludge and septic tank pumpings into solid waste at a sanitary landfill. Bench-scale laboratory studies were conducted to determine the moisture-absorbing capacity of typical solid waste constituents and to establish characteristics of admixture with various sludges. The composition and quantity of solid waste produced in the City of Oceanside were determined by quarterly waste samplings and waste collection vehicle weighings. Pilot plant lysimeters were employed to investigate the effects of sewage and septic tank sludges on solid waste temperature, decomposition, leachate, settlement, insects, odor and gas characteristics.
"This final report (SW-71d)--on work performed under Federal solid waste disposal demonstration grant no. S801582 to the city of Oceanside, California, was prepared under the direction of Ralph Stone." Includes bibliographical references (pages 292-299).
