The Town of Decaur, Ark., is using a self-propelled dredging system as part of a new biosolids management program designed to reduce the cost of sludge disposal and increase solids detention time in-plant. While less than 1,000 people live inDecatur, the town's wastewater treatment plant handles flow equivalent to a population of 40,000. The primary contributor to these flows is a poultry processing plant.
Decatur expects to save approximately $50,000 a year with a fully operational biosolids management plan.'
