Land Application of Organic Residuals: Public Health Threat or Environmental Benefit?
A report based on a workshop chaired by Gary King, Ph.D., chair of the Public and Scientific Affairs Board Committee on Environmental Microbiology.

Isn't it amazing? All these regulations, so complex, so in fear of the shit, so costly both in terms of public finances, time and effort, while even at the end of it, you still have a "waste" product.
We know that if the "sludge" was not produced in the first place, with the anaerobic, flushing toilet and chuck-it-out-of-site-out-of-mind mentality, then our world would be a better place.

Targeted National Sewage Sludge Survey Report

Fact Sheet; January 2009; EPA 822-F-08-006 (https://www.epa.gov/waterscience/biosolids/tnsss-fs.html)

EPA is releasing the results of the Targeted National Sewage Sludge Survey (TNSSS). The survey measured concentrations for a target list of chemicals (analytes) in sewage sludge from a statistically derived sample of publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs) in the contiguous United States with flow rates of at least one million gallons per day and which use secondary treatment or better.

Targeted National Sewage Sludge Survey Report (https://earth1.epa.gov/waterscience/biosolids/tnsss-overview.html)

January 2009; EPA 822-R-08-014

The Targeted National Sewage Sludge Survey is a valuable step in advancing the understanding of what is present in treated sewage sludge. The information from the survey provides important input for EPA and others to use in evaluating biosolids generated by the nation's publicly owned treatment works. It also fulfills an important commitment under the agency's four pronged strategy for pharmaceuticals and personal care products by providing the first national estimates of which pharmaceuticals, steroids and hormones may be present in sewage sludge and at what concentrations.
