St. Tammany parish on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain is the fastest growing parish in the state of Louisiana. Along with that growth comes the need to address issues of waste management. In the past, most outlying communities relied upon individual treatment systems such as septic tanks to deal with their waste. As the area becomes more metropolitan, a more cohesive waste management plan must be developed. Due to these concerns and potential liability issues, Southeastern Louisiana Water and Sewer Company, LLC is moving to upgrade their residuals management program from lagoon treatment system/disposal system and implement the development of value-added products. The two major contenders are a indirect drying process and a thermophilic alkaline process from which sufficient fertilizer could be produced to sustain a turf grass operation.
