Early Signup for Residuals-Biosolids Meeting Ends March 18

The Water Environment Federation (WEF) will present Residuals and Biosolids Management 2009: Sustainable Biosolids Management from May 3-6 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Ore.

Coordinated by WEF’s Residuals and Biosolids Committee, in cooperation with the NorthWest Biosolids Management Association, the Pacific Northwest Clean Water Association, and the Oregon Association of Clean Water Agencies, this 23rd annual conference will address sustainable processing and best management practices for residuals and biosolids, according to a March 10 press release.

Increasingly, industrial and agricultural communities are moving toward more stringent regulatory requirements for residuals processing, handling, and disposal, including beneficial use options. This conference will educate stakeholders such as regulators, service providers, end users, and public administrators about current issues, regulatory requirements, and methods for handling, processing, and reusing biosolids in a sustainable manner.

WEF encourages agronomists, soil scientists, farmers, agriculturalists, landscapers, design engineering and construction professionals, municipal wastewater and water treatment system managers, pollution control equipment manufacturers, local, state, and federal regulatory agency personnel, industrial water and wastewater treatment professionals, residuals and biosolids generators and appliers, and organic and inorganic residuals managers to attend..
