Benson Residents Cry Foul As Logan Hopes To Build Biosolid Composting Facility

Mar 8, 2021

To accompany its new mechanical water treatment facility, Logan has designed an environmentally friendly plan to compost the biosolids, but residents say the planned site is too near “the gateway to Benson.”

“We already have the sewer system there, there’s Gossner’s, and we have their polishing ponds,” former-Judge Thomas Willmore said at the Cache County Planning Commission meeting on Thursday. “There are other places to put it. Benson is a gateway, 3200 West is a gateway for businesses and Benson will continue to grow.”

Another resident, Katie Fuller, spoke of how Benson does not use the sewer system like the majority of the county.
