Technologies have been developed and tested for the beneficial use of water treatment residuals. Application of these techniques depends on the understanding of the property of the residuals. Ten samples were collected, tested in the laboratory. The properties of the residuals and beneficial uses of residuals are also provided. Lime residuals can be used in agricultural soil conditioning, reclamation of acidic soils and cement production. Iron residuals are employed for iron recovery and desulphurization. Alum residuals are utilized in brick making and composting. Copyright ASCE 2008.
