A methodology was developed in this report for use in the evaluation of alternatives for the ultimate disposal of residual wastes generated in municipal wastewater treatment plants. This methodology considered technical, economic, social, and institutional factors pertinent to a thorough review of alternatives. Residual wastes generated in municipal wasteswater treatment plants were characterized. Handling and treatment processes for the residual wastes were discussed and evaluated in light of qualitative and quantitative changes to the residual wastes. Liquid, gaseous, and solid sidestreams produced in residual waste treatment were evaluated and rail, pipeline, barge, and truck transport of residual wastes were analyzed. Environmental, operational, and institutional constraints to the use of ocean disposal, lagoons, sanitary landfills, sludge recycling, and land reclamation were presented.
