Abstract: The objectives of this research were to: 1) determine the leachability of metals and organics from soils at hazardous waste land treatment sites; 2) evaluate the mobility of hazardous constituents as a function of soil depth and characteristics for these sites; and 3) determine the effects of weathering cycles on the leachability of these constituents. Soils from six depths from random test pits at two oil refinery sites and a wood preserving site were evaluated for specific metals and organics.
