Biosolids (sludge)

  • The wastewater treatment process produces two products, treated water that is discharged to receiving streams, and Biosolids that are sub surface applied to cropland.
  • Waste sludge that settles in the secondary treatment portion of the wastewater process, is removed, treated and stored for future land application. This product contains levels of the essential elements used in fertilizer (expressed as P,K &N or 10-10-25etc).   
  • Biosolids/Sludge application is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Equipment used for Solids land application

The Village of Morton applies roughly 300 dry tons of Biosolids per year on farm ground near the treatment plant.







Nearly 9,000,000 liquid gallons of sludge are generated each year.
