The Law of Biosolids: Developments in the Courts, Regulations and Legislation
Abstract:Biosolids management options for clean water agencies, land appliers, and biosolids marketers are expanding and so are the legal issues. The law and public policy regarding biosolids continue to ferment, with some facilities shifting to more processed biosolids products and waste to energy projects because of political and legal pressure on land application. Yet many clean water agencies are thriving with robust, large-scale class B land application programs using numerous farm partners, and the law continues to protect them. The few opponents of biosolids recycling have been largely unsuccessful in their efforts to ban land application or seek damages for purported injuries through tort lawsuits.
