Abstract or Summary
  • Biosolids are a by-product of municipal wastewater treatment. They contain organic matter and nutrients that are beneficial for soil, crop, and livestock productivity. Raw sewage solids must be processed to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) standards before they can be called biosolids. This publication focuses on how biosolids can be used to supply nutrients for crop production. Other aspects of biosolids utilization are addressed briefly, including: • Biosolids quality factors (trace element concentrations and pathogen levels) • Applicable regulations • Questions about biosolids safety and application practices
