The TNRD board will immerse itself in biosolids — the subject, not the stuff — at an all-day workshop Friday, July 20.
The board will hear from experts on alternative methods of handling biosolids other than applying them to land. Biosolids are the material left over after sewage treatment, and are commonly used for agricultural purposes.
Topics at the session, for which the board approved up to $25,000 to cover costs, will include various technologies, especially thermal disposal.
The use of biosolids on agricultural lands has become particularly controversial in the Nicola Valley and Kamloops.
