This draft environmental impact statement deals with the land application of sludge by the Metropolitan Sanitary District of Greater Chicago in Fulton County, Illinois. The project, known as the Prairie Plan, began in 1971 with local funding. The statement outlines socio-economic considerations, land use, agricultural benefits, and transportation costs. The primary and secondary impacts of reclamation of stripmined land through application of nutrients and organic matter produced through wastewater reclamation are addressed. A description of the monitoring system, loading rates, and land application methodologies are included. Direct and indirect health effects of the project are also presented.
