Municipalities across Canada are in need of sustainable strategies to manage their sewage sludge. The goal of this project is to create an intuitive, user-friendly software tool to evaluate the environmental and economic impacts associated with alternative sewage sludge management and disposal strategies. The project will support Kerr Wood Leidal Associates, a recognized leader in stormwater and wastewater management, continue to be a progressive leader in the domain. The model will allow Kerr Wood Leidal Associates provide municipalities with insights around the effects of conventional sewage sludge management methods relative to new, innovative ones. A particular emphasis of this project will be the relative performance of sludge-based activated carbon to mitigate the life-cycle costs and environmental effects of existing management techniques.
