Biosolids are the nutrient rich organic product of wastewater treatment. Strict federal and state standards permit biosolids to be recycled. Biosolids can be safely applied as a soil amendment to improve and maintain productive soils and stimulate plant growth. Rather than bury biosolids in a landfill, GMD's biosolids are recycled as a soil amendment in agriculture and forestry and are also available for garden use as a soil mix or compost. Recycling biosolids provides real benefits to crops and soils. Because the safety of this practice has been demonstrated for decades, GMD encourages recycling biosolids, thereby conserving landfill space. Biosolids are carefully treated and monitored and they must be used in accordance with regulatory requirements. Our biosolids management program is responsible for activities associated with recycling biosolids including transportation, land application, research, public information, monitoring and acquiring state and federal permits.
