Municipal facilities with a design flow rate equal to or greater than 1 million gallons per day, those that serve 10,000 people or more, and other facilities required to report (also known as “Class I sludge management facilities”) need to submit an annual biosolids report to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) by Dec. 31, 2020, and an annual report to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by Feb. 19, 2021. Both of these reports are based on the cropping year.
Note: The federal reports are required only for municipal facilities, not industrial facilities.
All municipal facilities in Minnesota that manage biosolids are required to submit a biosolids annual report by Dec. 31, 2020. Please note that even if you didn’t land apply during the 2020 cropping year, a biosolids annual report still needs to be submitted.
State reports must be submitted electronically
Submit the state biosolids annual report electronically by e-mail. For the cover letter, use the Water Quality Submittals Form. Email both the cover letter and report to email@example.com.
