Bloom is DC Water’s brand name for its Class A Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified Exceptional Quality (EQ) biosolids. DC Water was the first utility in North America to commission the thermal hydrolysis process, CAMBI, which converts sewage received from the District and its surrounding jurisdictions into renewable energy and EQ biosolids. Bloom is a nutrient rich, pathogen-free, moisture retaining, and also weed resistant soil amendment. The many properties of the product make it unique in the market. Through the marketing efforts of Blue Drop, DC Water is changing its perspective on what has always been a waste product and converting into a marketable resource for commercial soil blending, landscaping, and urban gardening.
