The objective of the research was to measure the fate and mobility of organic mutagens in municipal sludge amended soil. The results indicate that municipal sludges may contain a persistent mutagenic residue. In addition, leaching of mutagens may be a serious problem in coarse textured soils, or in areas which receive high amounts of rainfall. Uptake of mutagens into plants does not appear to be a significant problem for the sludges, soils, plants, and application rates employed, as none of the extracts of plants grown on sludge amended soil induced a positive response.
