Abstract: The legal aspects, siting, management, disposal and site restoration of hazardous wastes are explored in an expansion of 30 of the technical papers that were presented at the 1980 conference of the ASCE Environmental Engineering Division. Under legal aspects, the implementation of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act is covered, as are performance difficulties of secure landfills for chemical waste; a regulatory panel discussion is included. Siting issues include: facilities siting programs in the Northeast United State, soil/chemical concerns, broad area searches, and the Tennessee Valley Authority's Hazardous Waste Treatment/Disposal Siting Program. Under management and disposal the specific wastes examined include: chemicals, fly ash, heavy metals, sludge, and toxic munition waste. An appendix summarizes the hazardous waste management regulations from the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. Illustrations and charts accompany most papers.
