    Transport Truck Leaks Biosolids onto Fairview Avenue

    Goleta, CA

    The Goleta Sanitary District was notified at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, March 3, 2023 that a trucking contractor hauling biosolids from the District treatment facility had leaked material onto the roadway on Fairview Avenue near the Hwy. 101 overcrossing. The truck was eventually stopped on Hwy. 101 near Arroyo Grande by the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

    Biosolids are nutrient-rich organic materials reclaimed in the wastewater treatment process that are treated so they can be applied as fertilizer or soil amendment. The District’s biosolids are transported to Lost Hills, CA where they are used to create compost for beneficial reuse.

    The CHP, CALTRANS, Santa Barbara County Flood Control, and the City of Goleta responded to the event, which was initially believed to be a tar or roofing material spill. The City of Goleta sent Big Green Cleaning Company out to clean the roadway. They cleared the material from the overpass at Fairview Avenue and the adjacent affected streets. The City of Goleta sent a crew who had shoveled up the material and transported it to the District. District staff is in contact with the trucking contractor and an investigation as to the cause of the spill is underway.

    The Goleta Sanitary District is fully committed to minimizing impacts associated with this incident and will update the community as more information becomes available.
