Abstract
Municipal sewage sludge has been reported to be useful in reclaiming strip-mined soils for revegetation and row crop agriculture. Commercial methods using top soil replacement, lime and fertilizer have also been reported to be successful in reclaiming (revegetating) strip-mined soils. This study was carried out to determine: The relative costs of sewage sludge versus commercial methods for reclaiming strip-mined soils; the feasibility of using sewage sludge and commercial methods for reclaiming strip-mined soils; the environmental impact of using municipal sewage sludge and commercial methods for reclaiming strip-mined soils. This study involved an in-depth investigation of the reclamation of strip-mined sites using commercial methods and sewage sludge, including site visits to two (2) strip-mined sites.
