Biogro Program

Categories:

Our biosolids program, known as Biogro, began in 1975. Biogro oversees the beneficial reuse of our wastewater biosolids, including contracts associated with digester cleaning, transport and application services.

Biogro's manager is responsible for:

  • the program budget,
  • beneficial reuse site authorizations,
  •  communication with clients,
  •  application strategies,
  • future direction,
  • active participation within the biosolids community,
  • all state and federal reporting and documentation requirements.

​Mission

Our Biogro Program will provide an environmentally sound, publicly acceptable, cost-effective biosolids reuse program, while protecting public health, watersheds, and agricultural lands, in compliance with all federal, state, and local biosolids regulations and management practices.
