19-321BPU 17.1Biosolids Program Update and Preparation of a Request for ProposalsBPU- ReportREPORT - BIOSOLIDS PROGRAM UPDATE AND PREPARATION OF A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS BACKGROUND: The Laguna Treatment Plant produces and beneficially reuses approximately 32,600 wet tons of Class B biosolids annually. Historically, the City’s biosolids program has primarily relied on land application and composting as the main options for biosolids reuse. With the high unit cost of biosolids composting and an aging compost facility that requires substantial near-term capital investment, staff would like approval to explore alternatives to biosolids composting. RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the Water Department and the City Council/Board of Public Utilities Liaison Subcommittee that the Board of Public Utilities, by motion, approve issuing a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for the beneficial reuse of a portion of the biosolids produced at the City’s Laguna Treatment Plant.   Not available Not available
