Arizona Landfill Case Study (C3 Technology)

Between 1979 and 1980, industrial and hazardous wastes were disposed of at the Site in a series of unlined pits, each of which was used for a particular type of waste disposal. It is reported based on evaluations of manifests that approximately 3.4 million gallons of hazardous liquid wastes and between 3,700 and 4,100 tons of solid wastes were disposed of in the pits at the Site. Of particular focus is Pit 1 (50 feet long, 50 feet wide and had a depth of approximately 20 ft), which accepted a mixture of organic and oil wastes. The bulk of environmental impacts to soil and groundwater at the Site are related to wastes disposed at Pit 1.
