Wastewater treatment plant sludges often are a valuable resource. Sludges often contain valuable nutrients, such as phosphorous, nitrogen and lime and can be land applied in lieu of applying expensive chemical fertilizers. Land application of sewage sludge is a cheaper alternative to either the incineration or landfilling of the sludge. Since 1993, the US EPA has regulated the land application of wastewater treatment plant sewage sludge. The course is based upon the US EPA’s document, Land Application of Sewage Sludge, EPA Document No. EPA 831-B-93-002b, December 1994.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
