The land of application of municipal wastewater biosolids (sludge) is gaining in popularity. Biosolids are considered an excellent source of nitrogen and phosphorous and an alternative to chemical fertilizers. Land application of wastewater biosolids is considered a method of returning valuable nutrients back to the soil and reducing the use of chemical fertilizers and amendments for growing various crops. The US EPA also developed a process design manual for the land application of biosolids and septage. This course is based upon the US EPA document “Process Design Manual: Land Application of Sewage Sludge and Domestic Septage”, EPA Document No. EPA/625/K-95/001, September 1995. Compliance with the Y+US EPA’s 40 CFR Part 503, Land Application of Sewage Sludge is covered in a companion course.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
