Abstract:

America needs innovative and environmentally safe methods of handling sludge and other waste products. First steps are being taken, but Congress and the Reagan Administration need to push ahead vigorously with the decentralization of rule-making required to foster, instead of impede, this new development. In so doing, they need look only at the innovations in sludge treatment for guidance and encouragement.
