The purpose of this research was to evaluate changes in the persistence and mobility of the residues remaining when hazardous waste land treatment (HWLT) sites are closed. This evaluation attempted to identify the relative effectiveness of the different closure options for HWLT sites. A computer based approach, with different computer models for organics and inorganics, was used for the evaluation. The results demonstrated that this approach was useful for organic constituents, but limited for the inorganic constituents.
