The National Biosolids Partnership (NBP) honored three biosolids management organizations with the prestigious 10 Years Platinum award at WEFTEC® 2014 in New Orleans, La. The three organizations—Orange County Sanitation District, Calif.; City of Los Angeles, Calif.; and DC Water of Washington, DC—represent leaders in the industry for continuous improvement and best management practices in biosolids management.
“These awards are an incredible achievement representing a great deal of hard work and commitment,” said Sr. Program Manager, Lisa McFadden of the Water Environment Federation (WEF), Water, Science, and Engineering Center.
The NBP, which advances environmentally sound biosolids management practices, is operated by WEF in collaboration with the National Association of Clean Water Agencies and local and regional biosolids management organizations across the U.S. and Canada with support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The NBP serves as the information clearinghouse on effective biosolids practices and offers an EMS-based certification program that requires participating organizations to go beyond regulatory requirements.
