Abstract A coastal water disposal site for municipal wastewater sludge was established in the southeastern waters of Hong Kong in 1991. Although the assimilating capacity of such a disposal site was expected to be high, some accumulation of dumped sewage sludge on the nearby bottom sediments was considered inevitable. In this study, sedimentary fecal stanols and sterols, such as coprostanol (5β( H )-cholestan-3β-ol), cholestanol (5α( H )-cholestan-3β-ol) and cholesterol, were chosen as… CONTINUE READING
