      Clean water enters the water shed
    • Sludge(nutrient rich)
      Transported to farms
      Spread on crop fields as nutrient fertilizer
    • Coffee Grounds
      Are dried by a drying process and sent to Canada
      Turned into Java Logs

      Environmental Science majors conduct soil and water tests
      Residual management is performed by people who have a background in agronomy or environmental science
      Engineers
    • Conclusions
      Large market for environmental services
      Landfills vs. Environmental services
      Solutions or middle man can create business
