Abstract: Ashley Mihle with King County reveals the key to building good soil – our poop. King County’s wastewater treatment plants collect the water that goes down our drains, clean it and return it to the environment. But wastewater treatment is more than just cleaning water, the process also recovers resources such as recycled water, biogas for renewable energy, and biosolids. To create biosolids, the treatment plants break down and transform the poop and the food that we flush everyday into an endlessly renewable resource to build our soil. King County calls its biosolids Loop®. By using Loop to grow crops and healthy forests, we return carbon and nutrients to our land, which helps us fight climate change and farm sustainably.


Our Speaker: Ashley Mihle is an environmental scientist and project manager with King County’s Loop® biosolids program, where she works to develop new Loop products and increase awareness and support of Loop biosolids. She is co-chair of the Northwest Biosolids Outreach and Education Committee, which advances environmental sustainability through the beneficial use of biosolids and a board member of the Washington Organic Recycling Council. Ashley has a Master of Science and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Washington, with a focus on water resources. She has over a decade of experience in project management, environmental compliance, soil science, biosolids, communications, market research, strategic planning, and business development.


Free for EVERYONE!!!
