The three water treatment plants of Asheville city in North Carolina, United States produced around 1.3 million gallons of wastes after the completion of roughly 7.4 billion gallons of water in the past year. Following this, Asheville officials have recently taken the decision to implement the new system to manage water treatment sludge. Last year, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality imposed stricter controls on the list of materials that MSD could accept and this included the inclusion of the city’s sludge into the plant.

Earlier, the plan was to send the residual to landfills but no such shipments have been implemented to date and the sludge is being placed in holding ponds at the city’s water treatment plants. At the beginning of 2019, the City Manager Debra Campbell authorized GHD Consulting Services to create a permanent solution for residuals disposal for the water treatment plants, in addition to installation of a drinking water plant (รับติดตั้งโรงงานน้ำดื่ม). In earlier times also, the handling of Asheville’s sludge had changed and the contract for residuals was given to MSD. But later, the option of MSD for disposal for large volumes was left out as it was not a sustainable residuals management option.

Right now, Asheville is planning to throw its sludge out with the trash and the cost for the first year operation has also increased significantly to reach $295,000. In the year 2018, the total spending on residual management was just limited to $110,000. One of the prominent reasons for the high price is the increasing transportation cost of shifting the waste to a distance of 137 miles across the state to Concord, located in the northeast of Charlotte.
