This project examines whether Metro Vancouver’s residuals (biosolids and drinking water treatment residuals) and Biosolids Growing Medium (BGM), can be used as components in growing media to enhance and optimize the performance of Low Impact Development landscapes within Metro Vancouver. Includes a review of existing regulations, current practices, and scientific literature. This project identifies opportunities for the use of residuals and BGM in addressing stormwater challenges in the region.
