This report is a primary reference for regional, state, and local regulatory authorities and their constituents. It describes the federal requirements concerning pathogens in sewage sludge and septage destined for land application or surface disposal, and it provides guidance for meeting those requirements. The document has undergone minor revisions from the 1999 edition, including minor editorial changes, an updated list of EPA and State biosolids coordinators, and minor updates to the procedures for analyzing bacteria, helminth ova, and enteroviruses.
