EPA Sludge Regulations Could Restrict Land Treatment

Record #:
On February 6, 1989, the Environmental Protection Agency published a proposal to regulate disposal of wastewater treatment plant sludges. According to Dale Crisp, Assistant Public Utilities Director for the City of Raleigh, the proposal might require a reduction in sludge loading rates, changes in the manner sludge is applied, and changes in cover crops grown or harvested at Raleigh’s Neuse River wastewater treatment plant land application site.
