Residuals Management Committee

The Residuals Management Committee has four main goals, we:

  1. Develop Association policies on residuals management
  2. Disseminate information regarding rules and regulations
  3. Educate members and the public on the technical and regulatory aspects of residuals management
  4. Hold an annual technical conference, along with technical sessions at the Annual Conference

The Residuals Management Committee works with various professionals in the residuals and biosolids field so that public, private, consulting, research and industry priorities and concerns are evaluated and highlighted as part of the Association. We share ideas, technology updates, cutting-edge research, case studies and lessons-learned to broaden and strengthen the knowledge, operational practices and success of residual management.
