Abstract:

The Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District (District) is implementing a unique project to engage the private sector in an innovative application of biosolids management techniques. In order to comply with a regulatory directive while attempting to achieve a balanced portfolio of biosolids management techniques that include beneficial reuse, the District has chosen to implement California's first Design-Build-Own-Operate (DBOO) project for a biosolids application. Specifically, the District will engage the private sector for the design, construction, operation and ownership of a Biosolids Recycling Facility (BRF). Compared to the conventional design-bid-build approach, the DBOO publicprivate partnership model will yield measurable benefits to the District in the form of cost savings, schedule efficiency, financing flexibility, technical innovation and a balanced transfer of risk.
