Biosolids Policy

The Fort Worth Biosolids Program is committed to protecting the environment as well as the health and safety of its workers and the general public. This shall be accomplished through the evaluation and implementation of innovative strategies that are feasible and cost effective and which also result in the production of high quality biosolids.

To have an effective biosolids program, the city and its contractor are committed to:

  • Beneficially reusing/recycling 100 percent of the Class AB biosolids produced at Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility
  • Complying with all federal, state and local requirements
  • Following the National Biosolids Partnership’s Code of Good Practice
  • Continuing to utilize the Biosolids Program’s Environmental Management System to continually improve environmental performance, implement goals, and take preventative actions
  • Building and maintaining positive relationships with the public and interested parties
  • Researching and implementing technologies or processes that optimize systems
