In December, , the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) proposed draft national standards for organic agriculture. As part of this proposal, the department invited the public to comment on the idea of allowing application of municipal sewage sludge on land used to grow organic foods. The Environmental Protection Agency’s top sludge regulator urged the department to allow “high quality.
Current Municipal Sludge Utilization and Disposal. Current sludge disposal practices are defined by a recently completed survey of 1, randomly selected municipal wastewater treatment facilities stratified by each of the 50 states. The size distribution of the facilities is analyzed, and the number of disposal technologies currently utilized at each facility is documented.

Restrictions on the utilization of municipal sludge in agriculture are related to pathogenic microorganisms, aluminum (Al), and heavy metals (HMs) present in the sludge.

Municipal sludge agricultural utilization practices book capita usage from public water supply systems in the United States was gallons ( liters) per day (Solley et al., ). In arid areas, municipal wastewater production is typically less than the amount withdrawn for water supply, but in some areas, wastewater flow exceeds the water supply because of infiltration and inflow (e.g.
stormwater) into wastewater collection systems. Committee on the Use of Treated Municipal Wastewater Effluents and Sludge in the Production of Crops for Human Consumption, National Research Council This book reviews the practice of reclaiming treated municipal wastewater for agricultural irrigation and using sewage sludge as a soil amendment and fertilizer in the United States.

form from slurry to dry solids, depending on the type of sludge treatment. Agricultural utilization of sewage sludge has been practiced since it was first produced. Given agricultural experience with the use of human excrement, sewage, and animal manure on croplands, the application of municipal wastewater sludge to agricultural lands was a.
effluent and a concentrated stream of solids in liquid, called sludge. The sludge is treated as required for utilization or disposal, and additional treatment of effluent may be needed to accommodate specific water reuse opportunities.
The practice of municipal wastewater treatment evolved primarily to accommodate dis-charge. utilization of nutrients by crops and is consistent with the waste management system plan. The amounts of nutrients that may be removed by the harvested portions of plants may be obtained from the Illinois Agronomy Handbook, the USDA-NRCS Agricultural Waste Management Field Handbook, or other approved sources.
Where municipal wastewater and. Municipal sewage sludge has been increasingly produced in China with the development of municipal wastewater treatment. The use of sewage sludge as a fertilizer and soil amendment has resulted in high concentrations of heavy metals in the soil and food limiting its use.
Controlling the pollution of heavy metals is the key factor to realize the safe utilization of sewage sludge. Sewage sludge is the residual, semi-solid material that is produced as a by-product during sewage treatment of industrial or municipal wastewater.
The term "septage" also refers to sludge from simple wastewater treatment but is connected to simple on-site sanitation systems, such as septic fresh sewage or wastewater enters a primary settling tank, approximately 50% of the suspended.
