This land treatment technical appendix to the Survey Scope Study provides the basic soil, geological and hydrological data for this study as a starting point for planners and engineers who may be involved in future land treatment works in northern Ohio. This appendix does not deal with the actual planning and preliminary engineering of the land treatment components of the study. It is primarily oriented toward defining the physical constraints and opportunities related to land treatment in the Lake Erie Basin or northern Ohio. The appendix discusses the conventional criteria for selecting soils for land treatment and the rationale for a new set of criteria developed during this Survey Scope Study. The reader will learn that the soils selected for the Cleveland-AkronThree Rivers Basin are generally far more fine grained and impermeable than previously though to be optimum. These tighter soils have been selected, and the 46,000 acres of sandy soils, which were originally at the top of the list, have been bypassed. This appendix is intended to provide the basis for determining physical feasibility of land treatment for the Three Rivers Basin. The report does not attempt to provide final design data, but assumes that detailed studies will proceed on specific sites after the selection of general areas. Author
