Bloom, a member of MTBMA, has offered a behind-the-scenes tour of the DC Water’s Blue Plains Wastewater Treatment facility to learn how Bloom is made, and learn about the renewable energy and other benefits derived from the product and the process.  This fascinating one-hour tour is offered free of charge to our members, BUT SPACE IS LIMITED.  We can only welcome 20 participants on this tour. 

Learn more about “THE PROBLEM”:

Bloom has realized a problem when it comes to road construction landscaping.  When designing and building landscaping for construction projects, companies are expected to provide rapid growth of vegetative ground cover, long term success of landscape plantings and soil preservation.  However, when it comes to topsoil, you get what you pay for.  Cheap products rarely generate the growth desired, and expensive products are, well, expensive.  Bloom would like to present to our members a way they can meet soil specifications while producing vigorous growth without breaking a project’s budget.

Come see for yourself, how Bloom is utilizing the largest advanced wastewater treatment plant in the world!  On an average day, the facility treats close to 300 million gallons of wastewater and has the ability to treat over 1 billion gallons a day at peak flow.  Wastewater flows in from the District of Columbia and from Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland and Fairfax and Loudoun counties in Virginia.
