Be it thunderstorms and tornadoes in the Central states or hurricanes and tropical storms in Florida like Ian and Sandy, or compromised plants and equipment, Synagro is prepared to act quickly and efficiently.

BALTIMORE, Maryland, May 23, 2023 – Synagro Technologies, Inc., the preeminent provider of biosolids and residuals solutions services in North America, today announced the launch of its TurnKey™ emergency services – a full-service, turn-key solution for municipalities and businesses throughout the continental United States.

“By serving our customers during unique emergencies for more than 35 years, we’ve developed a broad service offering collectively referred to as our TurnKey emergency services and a streamlined process to help sustain businesses with expert support tailored regionally for when and where needed,” explained Pam Racey, chief commercial officer, Synagro. “For example, we realize in the Pacific Northwest, many facilities have equipment nearing or at its end-of-service life and when it fails, Synagro is at the ready.”

“Synagro has more than 35 years of experience helping customers manage compromised equipment and facilities and the results of natural disasters,” added Michael Kotelec, senior vice president, Services Sales, Synagro. “In the Eastern U.S., we’ve supported multiple customers when their plants have been compromised with temporary dewatering, emergency pumping and tank cleaning, and hauling and disposal when new on-order equipment is delayed.”

Drawing on this significant industry experience responding to customers’ emergencies, Synagro has bundled those services typically employed including, but not limited to:

  • Regionally and seasonally based and turnkey in most cases;
  • Emergency digester and tank pumping and cleanout;
  • Emergency liquids or solids hauling and disposal;
