Abstract:Phase 2 of this project represents the analytical monitoring of an
estimated 64,800 ft^3 (1,835 m^3) of chromium-contaminated soil, classified
as a hazardous waste (>5 mg/l chromium extract concentration as measured by
the standard EP toxicity test), that was treated at the Pearl Harbor Naval
Shipyard during a two-month period in late 1982. Although the treatment
process details (wash-water-detention times, number of wash-water-flow through
times, and type and amount of chemicals) were the contractor's proprietary
information, the analytical monitoring treatment process essentially
followed the general treatment methods developed in Phase 1 (laboratory
and pilot plant studies). The treatment performed by Advanced Environmental
Consultants, Inc., of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania consisted of utilizing
2 yd^3 (1.53 m^3) modified dumpsters as the soil receptacles, using upflow/
downflow washing to leach the chromium from the soil, adding a reducing
agent to chemically reduce chromium Cr+6 to Cr+3, raising the pH to approximately
8.5 to precipitate the chromium from solution and to dewater the
chromium laden sludge. Each processed soil batch (nearly all 2 yd^3 dumpster
units) were monitored for chromium extract. Only 35 of approximatley 1200
dumpster loads were above the 5-mg/l limit, and these were reprocessed.
