Abstract

It is likely that Australian sludge management guidelines will require monitoring of composted wastewater sludge for the presence of salmonellae. However, methods to perform this monitoring are not well established and it appears that methods used in the past may severely underestimate Salmonella numbers. The aim of this project was to evaluate methods for detecting Salmonella in composted sludge.
