Emerging Professionals Tour of Blue Plains Water Treatment Plant Led and Hosted by Bloom
Join LCA as we tour DC Water’s Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment facility, the largest such facility in the world. Participants will learn about the science and technology powering the plant, as well as the renewable energy and other benefits derived from the process, most notably a high-performing soil amendment called Bloom. Participants will learn about the benefits of biosolids in landscaping, the composition of Bloom and the ways in which it can be used to meet common specifications in landscaping. Join us as we witness the process of making Bloom from start to finish!

Parking is available in front of the visitor center and transportation is provided for getting around the plant.
