Expert help for designing and managing a biosolids program So notoriously complex and occasionally controversial that it has paradoxically reduced biosolids applications in some locales, CFR Part 503 becomes understandable, manageable, and doable with this expert guide from experienced environmental engineer Michael J. McFarland, diplomate of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and certified Grade IV wastewater and water treatment operator. If you have interest in or responsibility for fulfilling the intent of Part 503, putting biosolids and organic residues to beneficial use and decreasing the burden on landfills, Biosolids Engineering can help you:
-Control the factors in wastewater and biosolids processing that affect usability
-Apply soil chemistry and physics to finding safe and appropriate uses for biosolids
-Design needed hydraulic, storage, and transport systems
-Ensure pathogen and vector attraction reduction
-Make biosolids engineering a team effort with agricultural specialists, mining engineers, water treatment officials, and highway, transportation, and timber specialists
-Apply sampling and analysis protocols for effectiveness and safety
-Increase public awareness of the safety and value of biosolids applications
