Released under Phase II of Oak Ridge Health Studies Agreement. Copies of several memos and other documents pertaining to early involvement with oil landfarming at Y-12 in 1973. Background on initiation of oil landfarming at Y-12, funding, and research is given. Research primarily focused on what procedures to be utilized to maximize biodegradation of oil so as to minimize costs (primarily land area and labor) and the risk of introduction of unfavorable byproducts of biodegradation to the environment from land disposal and associated manipulations. A description of the proposed oil pit disposal design and summary of experimental procedure are included.
