Olympic Ag LLC is 16 miles up the Wynoochee River Valley just north of Montesano, Washington.  As a recently permitted Beneficial Use Facility (BUF) and land application site that provides winter storage of biosolids, Olympic Ag is providing an alternative for local biosolids generators in Western Washington that typically must travel long, and often treacherous routes to transport their biosolids to BUFs in Eastern Washington. In the spring the stored biosolids will be land applied to the surrounding 100 plus acres of farm land.

Leadership Spotlight Series

“I had a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science but no real tools for solving environmental problems.” Sound familiar? There are a few folks who woke up one day and knew they wanted to study biosolids, work with biosolids, and promote beneficial use. Maybe they were inspired by one of you. But most of us happened upon biosolids. We thought to ourselves, “eh…don’t know what this is really but it sounds environmental” or “this is sort of what I studied”.  What hooked many of us, Steve included, was that biosolids are a real, practical tool to solve environmental problems.
