Expert help for designing and managing a biosolids program

So notoriously complex and occasionally controversial that it has paradoxically reduced biosolids applications in some locales, CFR Part 503 becomes understandable, manageable, and doable with this expert guide from experienced environmental engineer Michael J. McFarland, diplomate of the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and certified Grade IV wastewater and water treatment operator.
