The mission of the Biosolids Committee is to promote education, networking and sound public policy in the field of biosolids while advocating proper management of biosolids by utilities, haulers, land appliers, and other biosolids end users.
Every other year the Biosolids Committee develops technical education seminars. In addition, the committee routinely conducts conference calls to keep their membership informed. The committee also coordinates with the WEF Residuals and Biosolids Committee to disseminate national information to local members.
