NSF International Verifies Big Fish Environmental System Performance

System treated wastewater from a variety of sources during test process

The results from a 13-month verification test performed by NSF International under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ETV Program’s Water Quality Protection Center have been announced for the Big Fish Environmental system.

The comprehensive NSF assessment of the system’s performance level was performed at Big Fish Environmental’s facility in Charlevoix, Mich. During the verification, Big Fish’s treatment system processed septage and high strength wastewater from a wide range of sources, including residential and commercial septic tanks, portable toilet waste, fruit processing waste, municipal wastewater treatment plant secondary sludge and commercial wastes containing fats, oils and grease.

Big Fish Environmental specializes in the design and construction of septage and high strength wastewater receiving and treatment facilities throughout the U.S. Big Fish works in both the private and public sectors, including collaborative efforts, and its turnkey system can be tailored to fit facilities of any size. Started in 2004, Big Fish Environmental is recognized as the only facility in Michigan to produce an Exceptional Quality Class A Biosolid and redistribute it as a beneficial fertilizer.
