Biosolids will be the issue up for discussion at a Thompson-Nicola Regional District board workshop Friday, July 20, 2018.

The workshop, which is open to the public, will be held at the Hotel 540 starting at 9 a.m. until about 3 p.m.

Presentations will be made on the province’s Organic Matter Recycling Regulations and by Stantec engineering on options for the management of biosolids.

The workshop was proposed by Directors Randy Murray and Ken Gillis with a view to looking for ways to eliminate the use of biosolids — which are the residuals from sewage disposal systems — on land.

The material is used in some agricultural applications as a soil enhancer, but is controversial due to concerns about contamination.
