    Abstract

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing comprehensive technical regulations under the Clean Water Act Section 405(d) on the reuse and disposal of municipal wastewater sludge. The reuse and disposal options are land application (including distribution and marketing), landfilling, incineration, and ocean disposal. This paper identifies the key questions to be addressed by EPA and the tasks and major steps to pursue in answering these key questions.
