Bloom had the honor and pleasure of hosting Maryland Secretary of Agriculture Kevin Atticks and Director of Government Relations Rachel Jones this month for a comprehensive tour and discussion at DC Water’s Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The leaders were impressed with and supportive of Bloom’s work to provide a sustainable, affordable fertilizer and soil building option for Maryland’s farmers. They also listened to a presentation from DC Water experts on the state of research into PFAS and biosolids. We applaud the evidence-based approach their office is taking to tackle important issues like PFAS, and look forward to future information sharing with the team.
