Section 405 of the Clean Water Act requires the U.S. EPA to develop and issue regulations that identify: uses for sludge including disposal; specific factors (including costs) to be taken into account in determining the measures and practices applicable for each use or disposal; and concentrations of pollutants that interfere with each use or disposal. To comply with this mandate, the U.S. EPA has embarked on a program to develop four major technical regulations: land application, including distribution and marketing; landfilling; incineration and surface disposal. The development of these technical regulations requires a consideration of pathogens as well as chemical constituents of sludge. The purpose of the report is to describe a proposed methodology and associated computer model designed to assess the potential risks to human health posed by pathogens in municipal sewage sludge applied to land as fertilizer or soil conditioner.
