RE: [greenyes] Biosolids Injection Wells


Art,

You say that " Land application of biosolids works well when done using
appropriate agronomic rates for ALL the components in the Biosolids."

My local sludge utility is thinking of switching from land application
to some sort of composting system. It is going to be a lot more
expensive ... should they do this switch for environmental reasons, or
is land application considered an acceptable "green" activity?

Anyone else have an opinion?

Keith,

Have you considered the effects of disposing of human pathogen laden
materials into pristine, pathogen free soil formations? Not to mention
the
physical difficulty of pumping bioSOLIDS into tight oil formations.
Let's
not unknowingly create a longer term problem by myopically seeking a
solution for a near term problem ala MTBE.

Land application of biosolids works well when done using appropriate
agronomic rates for ALL the components in the Biosolids.
