C. To maintain a quality of wastewater treatment plant biosolids at a level which allows their use and disposal in compliance with applicable statutes and regulations.

D. To protect the POTW personnel who may be affected by wastewater, wastewater solids and biosolids in the course of their employment and to protect the general public.

E. To improve the opportunity to recycle and reclaim wastewater and biosolids from the POTW as the opportunity becomes available and viable. (Ord. 2351, 2018)
