Abstract

This project refines the issues and terminology regarding whether biosolids odors might cause illness and reviews the evidence that biosolids odors do or do not cause illness. Furthermore, this project evaluates whether WWTP emissions cause irritation and explains why many symptoms attributed to biosolids odors fail to qualify as illness.

Originally funded as WERF project 00-HHE-5c.
