Abstract
The manual presents a rational procedure for the design of municipal sludge land application systems. The utilization of sludge in agriculture, forestry, the reclamation of disturbed and marginal lands, and dedicated high rate surface disposal practices are discussed in detail, with design concepts and criteria presented where available. A two phased planning approach to site identification, evaluation, and selection along with information on field investigations are also presented. The manual includes examples of each land application option and case studies of sludge utilization in agriculture and for reclamation of disturbed mining lands.
