Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility Biosolids Management and Beneficial Reuse project Fort Worth's Water Utility is changing the current method of repurposing treated sewage sludge at the Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility. <br /><br /> The current process is to pump the biosolids to a city-owned processing facility where they are dewatered using belt filter presses, then chemically conditioned for pathogen and odor control. The treated biosolids are then transported to agricultural sites in eight counties in north Texas where they are used as fertilizer. The new approved method involves thermal direct drum drying of dewatered biosolids. The goal is to produce a high quality dry, granular product at a reasonable cost that can be marketed and that will minimize odor complaints that had become more prevalent in the past few years. <br /><br /> The new drum drier will be able to use biogas, a renewable energy source produced at the Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility, as a fuel source. The biosolids facility will be north of the Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility. The project area is located south of the intersection with Trammel Davis Road and Greenbelt Road and north of the West Fork of the Trinity River. Design
