The proceedings contain 16 papers from invited investigators recognized for their expertise in the field of microbial health considerations of soil disposal of domestic wastewaters. The topical reviews and recent research papers concerned with current practices in subsoil disposal and land applications of wastewaters, background information on soil and geohydrological considerations, the transport and fate of pathogens in wastewaters, soils, and groundwaters, epidemiologists approaches, and engineering control measures for subsurface disposal and land application of wastewaters were presented before a panel of experts including environmental engineers, virologists, epidemiologists, parisitologists, a soil physicist, a sanitary and public health engineer, and other attendees. The panel members were allowed priority questioning of the speakers during the discussion period following each paper. Following the conference, the panel met to develop recommendations relative to this subject concerning research needs and the approaches that should be taken in future studies. The discussions following each paper and the panel report are included in the proceedings.
