YOURS, MINE AND OURS A PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP IN BIOSOLIDS MANAGEMENT
Residuals management is a major component of domestic wastewater treatment. Costs associated with residuals management can be a substantial part of a publicly owned treatment works (POTW) overall budget. The vast majority of the residuals generated from POTWs in the state of Colorado are managed as biosolids and beneficially reused in compliance with 40CFR part 503. Approximately 90% of an estimated annual production of about 100,000 dry tons of biosolids generated in the State of Colorado is beneficially reused primarily through land application. Because of increasing conversion of farm land to residential uses and increasing distances to suitable ground for beneficial reuse of biosolids, the Centennial Water & Sanitation District, the Plum Creek Wastewater Authority and Parker Ag LLC formed a partnership to purchase agricultural property to preserve their ability to beneficially reuse biosolids in an environmentally sound and cost effective manor. This project was brought to fruition with much less controversy and local concern than previous municipal purchases of agricultural property for similar purposes.
