August 2021 Online Forum: Sustainability and Wastewater Treatment Plants
August 19, 2021
Wastewater treatment plants are often the largest energy consumer in a city. And yet, they can also be an energy source. Sewage can be converted to energy through anaerobic digestion and methane capture. The water can also be reused and an asset to the community. Learn about how a wastewater treatment plant can be a part of the sustainable infrastructure for a city.
And why do we care in Lake Oswego? Lake Oswego is actively exploring rebuilding and managing the Tryon Creek Wastewater treatment plant. Let’s make it as sustainable as possible.
Learn about the challenges from Patty Nelson, Senior Engineer for Special Projects for the City of Oregon City, and find out how the city is approaching this opportunity from Anthony Hooper, Deputy City Manager for the City of Lake Oswego, and his team on this topic.
