The Municipality of Metropolitan Seattle (Metro) has identified four broad categories of sludge management alternatives to be pursued over the next 15-20 year planning period. The categories include composting, application to silviculture lands, application to agriculture lands and soil improvement. The Draft EIS identifies and evaluates potential impacts of these alternatives to geology, soils, public health, surface and groundwater quality, land use, vegetation and crops, terrestrial wildlife and aquatic life. Recommended mitigation measures are described. Also included is a detailed analysis of a proposed demonstration project on 72 acres of forest land in Western Washington.
