Municipality of North Cowichan Biosolids Options Assessment

Client: 
Municipality of North Cowichan

In order to identify contingency sites for biosolids management, SYLVIS conducted an investigation of a suite of potential management options for the Municipality of North Cowichan with an aim to identify an option that is wholly under the control of the Municipality.

SYLVIS investigated the feasibility of management options in forestry, mine and gravel pit reclamation, composting, disposal, and other contexts and assessed these options on the basis of environmental, social, economic, and logistical considerations.

As a result of this investigation, two feasible options were identified for consideration by the Municipality, one of which is under active development. SYLVIS continues to work with the Municipality to characterize and develop biosolids management options.
