Will I know when biosolids are applied near my property?

Consultation should occur whenever biosolids are applied to land regardless of the quality. In most cases, where high-quality biosolids are applied, consultation with neighbours is all that is required. When biosolids of lower quality are used relevant Guidelines can require erection of prominent signs to restrict access by the general public and stock to the site until vegetation is fully established and withholding periods have passed. Although not always mandatory, authorities or land owners will normally consult with their communities prior to undertaking biosolids application.
