It is the first tangible action by the City of Kamloops to come up with a solution for the disposal of biosolids.
Civic Operations Director Jen Fretz says council has agreed to set up a new stakeholder group.
Fretz says the city has been storing biosolids on the sewage treatment site since the new system was commissioned but stresses its not a huge immediate concern.
There is a wide range of options available to us and thats what will be discussed with the stakeholder group. The stakeholder group help provide staff with long term biosolids management strategies and then we would bring those forward to council for approval.”
Kamloops produces 12,500 tonnes of biosolids each year, that is the material generated after sewage treatment.
