Jun 18, 2024


State environmental regulators say they hope to make a decision on a proposed sewage sludge-holding facility in Bartholomew County by mid-August.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management is considering a request from Evan Daily of Biocycle LLC to accept dewatered biosolids for blending and use on farmland in Bartholomew and several neighboring counties a storage facility southeast of Columbus at 3788 E. County Road 300S. Biosolids are organic materials produced during the treatment of human sewage at wastewater treatment plants.

Initially, IDEM officials said they expected that a decision on the Biocycle LLC permit would come by June 1 at the earliest. Currently, the permit is still in the review process, officials said.
