The Atlantic County Utilities Authority is participating in the National Biosolids Partnership (NBP) biosolids management system certification program which is designed to help the ACUA to take a careful look at existing management practices for biosolids (the solid or semisolid material obtained from treated wastewater), with an eye on environmentally sound improvements that will meet and exceed regulatory requirements and protect public health.
The certification system is based on internationally recognized standards for an Environmental Management System (EMS)/International Organization of Standardization (ISO 14001), and provides a model for continuous improvement to meet changing environmental and regulatory demands.
