Sally's work has centered around use of different residuals as soil amendments. She has won the US EPA Clean Water Research Award twice. The first award was for demonstrating that biosolids in combination with liming materials can be used to restore metal contaminated site. This work was done in cooperation with US EPA Superfund at sites including Leadville, CO, Bunker Hill, ID, Joplin, MO and Jasper County, MO. The second time was for showing that biosolids can be used as a fertilizer for canola for biofuel production.
