Therefore, it is important to clarify what this report addresses and what it does not address. This report focuses on the land application of Class A and Class B biosolids. It does not consider risks from sewage treatment processes (including composting), storage, or transporting, nor does it cover risks from disposal practices of landfilling, surface disposal, or incineration. The committee was asked to devote its efforts to evaluating existing biosolids regulations (as of July 1, 2000) in 40 CFR Part 503.
The operators of municipal wastewater treatment facilities and the parties using biosolids and wastewater should implement visible, stringent management and self-regulation measures, including monitoring and reliable reporting by farmers, and should support vigilant enforcement of appropriate regulations by local or state agencies. Implementation of these measures will be credible means of preventing nuisance risks and harm to people, property, and highly valued nearby resources. • The municipal utility should carry out demonstration programs for public education, and to verify the effectiveness of management and selfregulatory systems.
