“To Lime or Not to Lime … That is the Question”
Abstract:The City of Orlando is nestled in Central Florida surrounded by cattle ranches and thousands of acres of orange groves. Due to expansions to theme parks, the Orange County Convention Center, tourism based businesses and technology based industry, the City continues to grow at a rapid pace, however, large tracts of agricultural properties are still within a 50 mile radius of the City's center. Central Florida is blessed with a warm climate year round (no snow covered fields) and high well drained sandy soils in western Orange County assuring reliable inclement weather application sites. The City of Orlando has confidence that beneficial use of Class B biosolids, via land application, will remain a viable option for Central Florida beyond the next decade assuming no major changes to EPA 503 or FDEP 62-640.
