- A layer of sludge about 50 inches deep may exist at the bottom of the tank that has not been mixed by the pump. This bottom sludge layer may be accumulating gas at a rate of 23 SCF/day, resulting in a basal level rise of 0.025 inches/day. At some point sufficient gas may accumulate to release spontaneously. Using reasonable assumptions about gas generation, waste properties and the mechanics of the release process, this may result in gas releases on the order of 1, 000 SCF.
