The document describes the development of a more economical method for the disposal of digested sludge solids produced in conventional biological sewage treatment plants. The process steps of filtration and incineration or drying are eliminated. Instead the entire sludge slurry is transported via pipelines to disposal on land which may then be at considerable distances from the treatment plant. The sludge slurry is a valuable organic plant culture and nutrient which can be advantageously used as a reclamation aid on strip mine spoil or on other denuded land areas.
