Biosolids Machine
420-860

Project Manager: Lee Sommers

Current Project Status: Construction

Project Scope:
   Bio-Solids Project: Presently the final sludge from the Water Protection Facility contains a considerable amount of water and is transported to local agricultural fields to be land applied as a fertilizer. More stringent requirements from regulatory agencies may limit the ability of the City to continue to land apply this waste product, thus requiring this product be taken to a land fill. This project would construct a sludge drying facility that would dry the sludge to an 8% moisture content thus reducing the volume of the sludge to approximately 10% of its current volume. It also pelletizes the product for land application, placement in a land fill, or other beneficial reuse. The reduction of waste solids volume by 10 times will significantly reduce disposal costs and will also preserve available landfill capacity.
