Hi all,I'm planning on putting worms in processed sewerage to help the local authority with a big problem of getting rid off the stuff. Anyone with knowledge about this?

Nope… but a little more information would help.  What do you mean by 'processed sewerage'?  Is this the stuff from an activated sludge system?  Or something else?  What is the state of the stuff:  soaking wet, damp or dry?  What about the carbon to nitrogen ratio?  Is it likely to contain pathogenic bacteria and viruses?  the answers to these questions will help to determine its suitability for vermiculture/vermicomposting.  In southeast Virginia a company produces a soil amendment called 'Nutrigreen', using all kinds of stuff – including sewage solids from waste water treatment.  Here is a link to a .pdf file:  Nutrigreen.
