The paper presents monitoring studies of accumulated sewage sludge in open areas of Lviv wastewater treatment plants. A map of the silt area was made, the area and volume of accumulated sediments were determined. A study was carried out to determine the gross and mobile forms of heavy metals in sludge, namely lead (Pb), on the basis of the obtained results, maps were constructed.
