The Moccasin Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant in the City of Chattanooga (Chattanooga) recognized the need for electronically-assisted data management to support their biosolids generation, analysis, land application, and National Biosolids Partnership (NBP) Environmental Management System (EMS) programs. Chattanooga observed that data management is integral to support: 1) their developing EMS program, 2) mandated regulatory reporting, and 3) increased public and private scrutiny of their biosolids production and management. In addition, the lack of current, complete, and accurate data in a centralized location made it difficult to properly address day-to-day operational needs. This paper describes the successful implementation of a customized version of the Material Manager™ database (Material Matters, Inc, 2009), a centralized biosolids land application management tool that provides multiple functions: recordkeeping, management support, quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC), contractor oversight, and reporting.
