This research was performed to investigate the relationship between compressive strength, density and water absorption of Pb-contaminated soil treated by Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) incorporated with sugarcane bagasse (SCB) using the Stablisation/Solidification (S/S) method. The SCB and OPC varying from 5% to 15% was added to stabilize and solidify the Pb-contaminated soil. The cylindrical samples were prepared and cured at room temperature for 28 days. Unconfined compression test, density test and water absorption test were conducted on these samples. The relationship between these variables were determined using simple statistical method by Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). Results indicate that there is a strong relationship between compressive strength and density with a regression coefficient of 77.4%. There is also a significant relationship between density and water absorption of approximately 70.7%. In addition, compressive strength and water absorption produced a strong relationship which is 73.6% of variability in strength development. In a nutshell, the strong relationship between these three variables represent the actual physical characteristics in S/S application.
