Design of long-term sludge-loading rates for forests under uncertainty

Journal of Environmental Engineering New York 121(9): 625-632
Design of long-term sludge-loading rates for forests under uncertainty
A simple time series describing nitrate-N concn percolating from a sludge-amended forest is presented for the case where applications are made at several-year intervals. The time series converges to a quasi-steady-state solution that can be solved for an application rate limited by percolating nitrate-N concn. A chance constraint incorporates uncertainty associated with precipitation and evapotranspiration, the most important factors in determining the excess water available for leaching.
