Regional Water Recycling Plant No. 5 Solids Handling Facility

Facility
The Regional Water Recycling Plant No. 5 Solids Handling Facility (RP-5 SHF) was operated by IEUA from 2001 to 2009 as a regional facility accepting dairy manure for recycling and generating biogas. In 2010, IEUA entered into a lease agreement with Environ Strategies, and in 2012, they began utilizing the facility for digestion of primarily food wastes with minor amounts of dairy manure. RP-5 SHF can process 705 wet tons/day of food and dairy waste through an anaerobic digestion process and can generate electricity from the biogas produced. When the RP-2 Solids Handling Facility is eventually decommissioned, the Agency expects to build biosolids handling facilities at RP-5 next to the existing RP-5 solids handling facilities, utilizing some of the land that has been reserved for such future expansion.
