REMINDER – Please complete the BIOSOLIDS survey, please! 

And get others to do so too. Spread the word!  
Thank you.

The U. S. National Biosolids Data survey! 
The 1st survey reported 2004 data and is outdated (see report at bottom of webpage above).  
All results of this 2nd survey will be shared free with you and the whole wastewater and biosolids management profession nationwide. Every U. S. WRRF/WWTP, of any size, should complete it.
Do the survey today:
You can start, and, if you run out of time, you can come back to it using the same computer.   
You will need your 2018 annual biosolids/sludge report & data.
Has anyone else at your WWTP filled in this survey? Or might they?  Please check, to avoid duplicates. Click the green button on this 
Survey Support page:
Want help? Join our online meet-ups.  See meet-up times below. We’ll share screen and talk through the questions, helping you fill in your survey on the spot. All you need is a browser.
$75 gift card RAFFLE:  As an extra “Thank you!", we'll enter you in a 1-in-50-chance raffle for a $75 gift card to a local coffee shop or eatery of your choice. Treat yourself & staff! Support your local favorite business! Your odds are good: 1 in every 50 survey respondents will win!  You'll have the choice to enter the raffle or not, during the survey.
Please forward this email to wastewater groups and to other WRRFs/WWTPs to encourage all U. S. WRRFs/WWTPs to fill out the survey.
Any questions, contact me.
