Contents Notes
Volume 1: Methodology and computer model -- Volume 2: User's manual. This document describes a methodology and associated computer model for assessing the risk to humans of pathogens in treated municipal sewage sludge applied to land. Land application of sludge in this methodology refers to the distribution of sludge on or just below the soild surface where it is employed as a fertilizer or soil conditioner for growing human food-chain and non-food-chain crops. The two categories of land application addressed in this model are (1) agricultural utilization and (2) distribution and marketing (D&M), and the source of microbial pathogens is (1) liquid or (2) dried or composted municipal sewage sludge.
