15 Years of Successful and Cost-Effective Biosolids Management in New Jersey
Abstract:Since its inception, the land application program at the Landis Sewerage Authority (LSA) has had to adapt to numerous New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJ DEP) nutrient management policy changes and public acceptance issues to ensure the integration of high environmental quality, public health, and economic viability. These goals have been met through a combination of innovative technological improvements, farm management techniques, and a partnering with the general public, business, environmental community, and all levels of government.
This paper will present cost information and data on loading rates, agronomic uptake rates for various crops, and Total Nitrogen reduction rates in the biosolids resulting from an innovative, one-of-a-kind “sludge wash” process.
