Treating wastewater is extremely energy intensive, making up 30-60% of a city's energy bill when combined with energy used for drinking water treatment. A mere 10 percent reduction could save millions!

This webinar will explore how wastewater treatment facilities in two Midwestern cities - Davenport, Iowa, and Fort Wayne, Ind. - have traversed the road toward energy independence. From upgrades to aeration systems, the introduction of anaerobic digestion and the harvesting of "high-strength wastes" that supercharge methane generation, these communities have shown that facilities once considered energy hogs are now beginning to reverse electric meters at a faster pace than ever.
