In this Final Environmental Impact Statement, the Environmental Protection Agency proposes to approve the Municipality of Metropolitan Seattle's (METRO) sludge management plan to utilize sludge for silvicultural application, soil improvement, and the production of a composted sludge project. With proper pretreatment, use of processes to reduce pathogens in sludge, and proper site management (i.e., selection of proper sites, management of application rates, and use of monitoring programs), land application of sludge can represent a beneficial resource use. Included is an impact analysis of Metro's proposed demonstration project at Pilchuck Tree Farm, Arlington Washington.
