The report is a user guide to the Solid Discharge Data System (SDDS), a computerized data base on solid waste discharges from stationary point sources. The SDDS is one of four waste stream data bases which are components of the Environmental Assessment Data Systems (EADS). The EADS concept has been designed to aid researchers in environmental assessment, emissions characterization, and control technology development. The SDDS contains data from source sampling which may include: design and typical operating data on control technology applied to the solid waste effluent stream; analysis of any fuel or feedstock to the process producing the effluent stream; results of chemical, physical, radiological, and biological/ecological tests of solid waste samples; process descriptions of the sources; and descriptions of the sampling equipment and techniques employed. The SDDS protocol is consistent with Level 1 and 2 reporting requirements. The guide gives detailed procedures for encoding SDDS data sets, defines procedures for submitting and retrieving data, and contains standard nomenclature to facilitate data encoding. It also contains a program library that describes analytical software available to the user and provides instructions for its use. The report also discusses procedures which allow its users to access the SDDS directly or through the EPA project officer.
