Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Abstract:

The authors present a cursory review of the source of metals in sewage sludge and an analysis of limited sludge metal data and drinking water data that supports the hypothesis that a water supply system with a corrosive water supply is potentially a significant source of metals to sewage sludge.
