Protecting our Community, Safeguarding the Environment
During the wastewater treatment process, organic matter is
removed from the water, treated, disinfected and converted to a
fertilizer product called biosolids. This service level reflects
the amount of biosolids recycled as fertilizer.
The current target for this service level is to recycle enough
biosolids to fertilize between 3,000 and 3,650 acres.
Our biosolids recycling efforts represent our commitment to
The production from the existing Biosolids Recycling Facility
(BRF) is linked to the capacity of the equipment, contractual
obligation and some discretion on how much material is delivered
from the treatment plant to the BRF. Major changes in production
levels will depend on future planning decisions to either expand
the BRF or implement new biosolids recycling projects.
