Health Effect of Application of Wastewater to LandGoff, James D.; Boyle Engineering Corporation, Newport Beach, California (Arizona-Nevada Academy of Science, 1979-04-13)There is a renewed interest in land application of treated effluent in both the states of Arizona and Nevada. Conservation of water and energy can be obtained by this treatment method. Data generated by the design engineer includes health effects related to heavy metals, bacteria, and aerosal spray. Examples of recent nuisance and consequences are noted. The application of this practice requires a case by case engineering and management analysis.
