Abstract

Laboratory analysis of land treatment of wood preservative contaminated soils was performed as part of an investigation of remediation alternatives for an EPA Superfund site. Experimental procedure involved 6 different site soils with different supplementary nutrients placed in lined steel boxes, 6′ × 12′ × 5′ deep, and analyzed for among other things creosote pentachlorophenol acclimated and total bacteria populations, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and pentachlorophenol (PCP) with both single and multiple loadings. The best overall percentage reduction occurred where there were moderate initial constituent concentrations and the highest level of manure. © 1991.
