A multiyear study of the effect on ground water of land disposal of sewage sludge (biosolids) provides insight into the risk of nitrate pollution of ground water in a south-eastern U.S. Piedmont Province setting. Two fields used for biosolid disposal and growth of row crops provided information about potential rates of nitrate movement to shallow ground water and possibly to ground water in the crystalline rocks underlying the sapro-lite. Initial studies based on semiannual sampling of a limited number of monitoring wells suggested that nitrate from a given biosolids application might take 200 to 300 days to reach the...
