Local circumstances in California have created a dynamic environment for biosolids management. Several local jurisdictions have ordinances that ban or restrict biosolids land application. The ordinances were adopted to maintain local oversight on biosolids land application and to address public perception and nuisance issues related to biosolids use. In 2002, Kern County, California adopted an ordinance that allows only Class A Exceptional Quality (EQ) biosolids land application. Recent public and political interest and groundwater concerns, has prompted the County to look at prohibiting the importation of biosolids or banning the practice of biosolids land application in the County.
