The study is an investigation of the wastewater treatment and sludge disposal methods of 18 plants in the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana region as a means of testing an application of a methodology previously developed by the EPA. The plants selected for analysis represent about 80% of the total treatment capacity of the region; individual plant capacities range from 35,000 to 120 million gpd (133 to 456,000 cu m/d). In application of the methodology, various sludge management alternatives are analyzed in terms of technical feasibility, costs, environmental impacts, sociopolitical implications, and other factors pertinent to regional-scale planning.
