This guide is designed to help the reader (1) identify the important soil and biosolids characteristics for a particular situation, (2) judge the advantages and disadvantages of using biosolids, and (3) design practices that will make optimum use of the biosolids. This guide is designed for the use of both wastewater technicians unfamiliar with soil science and soil science students unfamiliar with biosolids. The guide reviews basic soil science concepts and helps the reader (1) quantify local soil and biosolids characteristics, (2) understand the potential benefits and disadvantages of biosolids for local soil characteristics, and (3) suggests procedures for designing a biosolids application. A checklist cross-referenced to the text is also provided.
