[ARCHIVED] Biosolids Available for Landowner Use

The City of Wayne is accepting requests from landowners interesting in obtaining biosolids from the City's lagoon. The biosolids are available for application as soon as weather conditions permit.

The City will load and the landowner must haul and apply biosolids to any landowner controlled site complying with federal and state compliance requirements at landowner's cost. The City will complete the site application for NDEQ and the EPA 40 CFR 503 Annual Report requirements for the landowner. The landowner must provide the City the legal description of the site, application rate, comply with federal and state setbacks, and assurance the requirements were met.

The approximate nutrient value of the biosolid material is as follows:

- Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN): 8.4 lb / dry tn
- Ammonia Nitrogen (NH4-N): 0.1 lb / dry tn
- Organic Nitrogen: 8.3 lb / dry tn
- Total Phosphorus: 17.1 lb / dry tn

In the past, biosolids removal projects have been able to be applied at a rate of 6 tons per acre or greater. The City anticipates disposing of 2,000 dry tons. Application rate will vary depending on site conditions and physical properties of the sludge at the time of application. The City can provide past agronomic reports from the City's agronomist for review.

Interested parties may contact the City of Wayne, Attn: Betty McGuire, City Clerk, PO Box 8, Wayne, NE 68787, or submitted in person at the city offices located at 306 Pearl Street.

The City of Wayne reserves the right to reject any or all requests no meeting state and federal requirements and to waive informalities and irregularities. The sludge will be provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
