Mississippi River Forum: No Such Thing as Waste Water - June 19

  • McKnight Foundation 710 2nd S 2nd St Suite 400 Minneapolis, MN, 55401 United States (map)

You may know that the world's supply of phosphorus--an essential element of agricultural fertilizers--is reaching its limit. You may also know that our communities' waste water treatment facilities have made great strides recently in reducing phosphorus concentrations in their effluent. But did you know that the City of St. Cloud completed a pilot study to show that phosphorus fertilizer can be harvested from waste water? This study could enhance an already successful bio-solids management program by creating additional uses for recycled waste. Come learn how the program has gone, and how the City of St. Cloud is leading the way with innovative resource recovery efforts.

Shane Lund is a Water Quality Coordinator, and Emma Larson is an Environmental Specialist. Both are with the City of St. Cloud.
