Product was developed for assessing the risk to humans of pathogens from disposal of treated municipal sewage sludge. The purpose of the (sludge-only landfill or surface disposal), SLDGFILL model is to determine the probability of infection of a human receptor from pathogens in a sludge-only landfill (monofill) or in a surface disposal site. The ultimate objective for the model is to assist the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in developing technical criteria for regulatory activities. More immediate objectives include the use of the model to perform actual pathogen risk assessments and to identify research needs.
