Abstract: The ASCE Task Committee on Water Treatment Plant Residuals conducted an informal survey of state and federal agencies to collect data regarding the regulation of drinking water treatment residuals (iron, alum, and lime sludges, and membrane process concentrates/brines). Respondents described treatment and disposal requirements and outlined approved methods of disposal. Following a description of the survey results, a table summarizing the regulatory, economic, and operational considerations associated with each disposal option is provided.
