Land Application of Wastes: An Educational Program. Societal and Legal Constraints - Module 1.
Clarkson, W. W.; And Others
This module is an introduction to the legal and societal considerations which must be appraised when land application systems are being designed. It serves as an introduction to the federal legislation and state guidelines pertaining to land treatment. The main thrust of this module is to point out some of the concerns which a community is likely to express regarding land treatment proposals, and to illustrate the importance of open dealings with the community to foster public participation in the decision-making process. Zoning ordinances, the various planning and zoning boards, public acceptance, community concerns, economic and aesthetic factors are some of the concepts discussed in relation to land application. To illustrate each of these concepts, and the interrelationships among the various local bodies in a well thought out public acceptance campaign, two case histories are presented. (Author/BB)
