Biosolids Quality Protection Training

Untitled design (11)


Since the passage of the 1993 Sludge Rule (Title 40 CFR Part 503), there have been numerous proposals to expand the list of regulated pollutants allowable in land applied (i.e., recycled), surface disposed and/or incinerated biosolids. Maintaining compliance with current biosolids regulatory requirements while determining the potential impact of emerging biosolids pollutants on future management programs can be an expensive and technically complex undertaking.

This Biosolids Quality Protection course is designed to provide a simple, low-cost management framework for ensuring that the final biosolids product consistently achieves specific regulatory quality requirements. The course has been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of decision-makers, including municipal wastewater facility supervisors and operators, industrial dischargers, agricultural producers and land owners, as well as public health regulators and environmental policymakers.
