2016 Biosolids Management Compliance Report published

Treated solids (aka sewage sludge) compliance reported

Post Date:02/17/2017 12:50 PM

OCSD is proud of our continued track-record for recycling almost all of our biosolids (solids that are separated from wastewater and then treated). annual_rpt_thumb

Our ability to recycle these solids starts with our exceptional Source Control, which minimizes pollutants in the sewer system, ensuring pollutant concentrations in our biosolids are well below the regulatory limits. 

Our operations, maintenance, compliance staff and contractors, all of whom are part of our biosolids management system, ensure regulatory requirements and self-imposed best management practices are met to allow our biosolids to be used as a bulk soil amendment to enhance the environment.

OCSD also utilizes its biosolids policy, goals, levels of service, and key performance indicators to confirm our biosolids program and process are performing effectively and to demonstrate continuous improvement as part of our internal biosolids management system.

OCSD’s performance against the above commitments, along with our compliance data and supporting information, is found in this year's report (ocsd.com/503):
