The Moccasin Bend Wastewater Treatment Plant in the City of Chattanooga (Chattanooga) recognized the need for electronically-assisted data management to support their biosolids generation, analysis, land application, and National Biosolids Partnership (NBP) Environmental Management System (EMS) programs. In turn, the City hired Material Matters to develop a customized version of the Material Manager™ database (Material Matters, Inc., 2009), a centralized biosolids land application management tool that provides multiple functions: recordkeeping, management support, quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC), contractor oversight, and reporting. The database has served the City for over nine years, function not only as a tool that supports their EMS program, but also as a detailed management tool to answer to increased public and private scrutiny of their biosolids production and management.
In need of a better biosolids management option, The City of Raleigh, NC contacted Material Matters for a customized installation of the Material Manager™ database. The database was customized with City-specific options to support permit-specified needs presented by the City.
