Chemical composition of drainage water from soils treated with sewage sludge and town refuse compost



Chemical composition of drainage water from soils treated with sewage sludge and town refuse compost



Landwirtschaftliche Forschung, Sonderheft 33(2-3): 166-178



In experiments using 140-litre containers the degree of pollution of drainage water from six more or less matured sewage sludges and one town refuse compost, used as plant substrates, was 20-100 times that of normal soils in the first year, and 1-5 times in the sixth year. When the drainage water was acid, P and heavy metal contents remained high (Cd, Mn, Ni, Zn) if the initial concentrations of these metals in the sludge were high.
