    Papers present the state of the art in sludge sampling, sample preservation, validated methods for monitoring, and strategies for monitoring and field assessment. USEPA representatives describe the status of regulations and analytical needs related to characterization and regulation of sludge, sediment, and waste streams. Topics include quality assurance, sampling, organic and inorganic chemical methods, aquatic biological microbiological, and virological methods and risk assessment.
