NEFCO designed, constructed, and is currently operating and maintaining the City-owned facility under a long-term contract. NEFCO was chosen by the City of Cumberland as the best value for the services provided following a comprehensive RFP process.
The City of Cumberland’s biosolids production facility is one of NEFCO’s smaller facilities. Although small in size, it has proven to provide big benefits to the City. This biosolids production approach enables the City to discontinue the prior practice of disposing of sludge through a land application program that was becoming increasingly cost prohibitive due to the ever-increasing amount of federal/state regulations. The Class A biosolids product is beneficially used as a renewable ingredient in natural fertilizer blends.
A portion of the project was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment / Stimulus Grant Act.
