Title: Forest land application of municipal sludge.
Author: Brockway, D.G.
Source: BioCycle 29(9): 62-68.
Description: In Michigan, 199 municipal and numerous industrial wastewater treatment facilities annually generate 222,750 dry tons of sludge, most of which is recycled on farmland. Substantial potential exists, however, to increase application on forest land in the northern two-thirds of the state (Brockway and Nguyen 1986). Although sludge application on agricultural land has received more study, forest land offers numerous unique advantages (Smith and Evans 1977).
