An interdisciplinary group of about 200 persons met to review the present base of scientific knowledge relating to benefits and constraints of using wastewaters for production of food and fiber. There were 27 papers presented by representatives from the fields of public health, engineering, agriculture, aquaculture, and other related scientific disciplines. Papers in two sections on potential restraints cover topics such as historical instances of disease transmission, possible transport of microbial pathogens through the food chain, legal implications, and sociological reactions. The aquaculture section deals primarily with experimental studies including such diverse approaches as culture of daphnia, salmon smolts, and water hyacinth. The agriculture section emphasizes the use of wastewater for crop production and the papers presented include case histories for long-term operating systems, as well as data from experimental studies. In addition to those papers presented at the conference, nine others have been included to make a total of 36 papers in the conference proceedings.
