The City encourages you to learn more about the wastewater treatment process and biosolids management. We have created several video productions that focus on these processes. To learn more request one of the biosolids video productions by contacting us at the information included on the bottom of this page.
"Where Does It Go?" – designed for audiences 8-years old and up. Three children host the program and take the viewer on a tour of the Hyperion Treatment Plant and the City's farm in Kern County.
"Imagine" – designed for persons touring the Hyperion Treatment Plant, as well as for groups in the community who are interested in the City's farm, but are not able to travel to it. The video shows viewers how biosolids can change marginal soil into productive farmland that grows crops and are sold to local dairies for livestock feed.
"Creating a Valuable Product: Biosolids" – designed for persons who have an understanding about farming but do not understand how organic wastewater solids are converted into beneficial biosolids. This video shows the viewers the various treatment processes that are used to convert the organic wastewater solids into beneficial biosolids.
"Completing the Cycle" – a 30-minute program designed solely for cable casting on the City's City View Channel 35. The host of the program interviews plant and farm personnel concerning their roles in the production and land application of beneficial biosolids.
