The Landis S A owns and operates an 8.2 mgd advanced wastewater treatment facility. It is the largest public wastewater facility in New Jersey that after treatment, all of the water is discharged back to the groundwater to recharge the aquifer. The authority also utilizes all of the biosolids (sludge) produced from wastewater treatment on its own farm. Due to the large number of food processors we have as customers, our wastewater and biosolids are higher in nitrogen and phosphorus. These plant nutrients are beneficially used on our 400-acre farm to grow rye straw, hay, field corn and small grains like wheat, oats or barley. Not only do we reuse this material, but also this method helps us control cost, with farm income at $50,000.
