Funding Biosolids Projects – A Losing Battle?
Abstract:The lack of adequate financial support for wastewater management projects in the United States has resulted in two classes of needed projects, non-discretionary projects that must be completed under penalty of legal action, and discretionary projects that are not required under law. Projects pertaining to solids processing at wastewater treatment plants have become discretionary because of lack of USEPA enforcement of regulations pertaining to biosolids under the Clean Water Act. This paper reviews the history of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and could happen elsewhere once first-round funds for wastewater infrastructure are depleted.
