U.S. EPA Recent Survey Shows High Concentrations of Sewage Sludge


Santa Fe Springs, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/19/2014 -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has detected high concentrations of toxic contaminants in sewage sludge, specifically toxic contaminants with heavy metals, steroids and pharmaceuticals, including the antibacterials, triclocarban and triclosan, antibiotics, disinfectants, antimicrobials, steroids, endocrine disrupting chemicals, and other anthropogenic drugs. This prompts all concerned companies to take more initiatives in providing services to clean sewage and drains efficiently.

Sewage treatment is geared towards reducing the effects of the wastewater in the environment. Materials like grease, nitrogen, and other settleable matter have a huge impact to the surroundings. It was observed that the chemical removal process is merely incidental as required by solubility, hydrophobic, and synthetic properties, and does not focus on the treatment process per se.

The end result is 42-billion wastes mostly made up of synthetic chemicals, either imported or manufactured in the United States. The sewage sludges are now found in different communities across the country.

This issue is highly controversial as the wastewater is primarily disposed to land, causing a direct effect on the agricultural industry. These findings are now causing the federal governments to support the measures in actual sewage clean-ups, as regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Other private companies also made initiatives to lessen the sewage sludge, one of which is the Gorlitz Sewer and Drain Inc. The company has been providing equipment and services to efficiently eliminate problems in the sewage system.
