Denver Metro Wastewater Reclamation District Receives NBP Biosolids EMS Certification

Aug. 15, 2005

The National Biosolids Partnership (NBP), an alliance of WEF and National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) with advisory support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), recognizes the Denver Metro Wastewater Reclamation District as the eighth wastewater agency in the nation to be certified and admitted to the Partnership’s environmental management system (EMS) for biosolids program.

Denver is one of more than 80 demonstration agencies participating in the NBP EMS for biosolids program. Denver’s achievement recognizes that the agency has been independently verified as having an effective biosolids EMS. The verification signifies that Denver meets the requirements for certification and admittance to the NBP EMS program and supports excellence in biosolids management practices, exceeds regulatory compliance obligations, and provides meaningful opportunities for public participation.
