Rochelle Municipal Utilities Water Reclamation Department is joining treatment plants nationwide in offering biosolid agricultural fertilizer to be used on area farmland.
Biosolids will be applied in the Spring, Summer and Fall to fields scheduled to be planted in corn. The City of Rochelle will perform soil testing and analysis of prospective fields at no cost to the property owner/operator in the Spring. Based on the results of that analysis, staff will determine suitability to meet State regulations.
Interested in being considered for the program? Please visit www.rmu.net or contact Adam Lanning at 562-4155 or . Applications will be considered on a first-come first-served basis.
