Northwest Biosolids


Northwest Biosolids old site was a dated, Dreamweaver installation that no longer could be effectively maintained.

Northwest Biosolids (NWBio) is a regional organization whose mission is to advance environmental sustainability through the beneficial use of biosolids. The organization also had a custom built PHP database of over 2500 research articles that was offered to members as a benefit. The database was difficult to search and maintain.

Parallel delivered a modern site that became the core of the organization's digital presence and operations.

Parallel worked with the Board on a limited budget to convert both the organization’s site content and research database into a single installation of Drupal 8. We also worked to NWBio to rewrite their content to speak directly to the public versus the heavier technical voice that defined the old site. This included creating a series of pages titled “Did you know?” that simplified complex concepts into easy, shareable content to help educate the public and combat negative press on biosolids.

Our work with NWBio not only improved their online presence, it updated their organizational processes, greatly improved their ability to maintain their data, and shifted their editorial voice as an organization.

Parallel continues to support NWBio with ongoing hosting and Drupal application maintenance and support.
