We regulate how biosolids are treated, tested, and used within Washington. Wastewater treatment plants producing biosolids and the businesses that apply them for farmers are regulated by Ecology.
Biosolids are a product of wastewater treatment systems. Rich in organic material and nutrients, biosolids are used by farmers across Washington to grow a variety of crops like wheat, corn, grass hay, and hops. Proper oversight, testing, and application ensures biosolids benefit farmers and soil without leaching nutrients into surface or groundwater.
