In August 2000, the National Biosolids Partnership (NBP) began developing a national voluntary Environmental Management System (EMS) for biosolids programs. The Village Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant of Fort Worth Texas was selected as one of the first twenty seven utilities across the United States to participate in a demonstration project to develop and establish a biosolids EMS program.

Because the dewatering, transportation, and land application of Fort Worth's biosolids are under the control of a private contractor, RENDA Environmental, Inc. (REI), the City of Fort Worth requested REI's participation in developing the EMS. REI's active participation resulted in the City of Fort Worth becoming the eighth agency in the United States and the first in the State of Texas to achieve NBP EMS certification in July 2005.
