The objectives of the research were to measure and interpret the surface soil changes in relation to the quality of runoff water from petroleum refinery land treatment (LT) systems undergoing simulated closure. Waste/soils from four LT sites were studied for chemical transformations in the greenhouse, and one of these sites was also tested under field conditions for runoff quality and waste stabilization. Within the scope of the study, several conclusions were drawn based upon the results: grass vegetation (as opposed to no vegetation) will improve runoff water quality by controlling migration of eroded particulates contaminated with organics and inorganics originating from the waste/soil mixture.
