Over 270 comprehensive performance evaluations have shown that sludge management system limitations were severe enough to contribute to non-compliance with NPDES permits in 49 percent of the plants evaluated. Most limitations could be attributed to one or more of the following: inaccurately estimated masses and/or volumes of waste sludge, inadequately sized processing equipment to address waste sludge mass and/or volume variations, and inflexibility in sludge processing operations and sludge management system options. The document highlights common sludge management system oversights and presents concepts to illustrate how such oversights can be addressed by designers and reviewing agencies in the future.
