Abstract:

This report presents the results of a Corps of Engineers effort in developing alternatives for the management of wastewater and sludge including wastewater reclamation alternatives, as related to the land treatment of wastes. Two regional wastewater management concepts incorporating land application, each including three separate alternatives for municipal and industrial discharges, are described and evaluated in terms of the objectives of national economic development, environmental quality, social well-being, and regional development. Land application techniques for treating wastewater offer a viable alternative means of meeting Federal and State water quality objectives and goals for many areas of the 12-county San Francisco Bay and Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Region. Information presented will provide input to the State of Californias water quality planning program, especially in the development of the States Comprehensive Water Quality Control Plans for basins within the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Region.
