Small Facilities

Wastewater utilities under 5 MGD often have treatment processes and facilities which are very different from their larger counterparts.  However, the issues facing these small plants are often as complex as those that are faced by larger ones which have access to more staff and resources.   Small utilities such as Stevens Point, WI, Essex Junction, VT, and many others have embraced the vision of net-zero energy which is central in the shift to the Utility of the Future.  This LIFT focus group explores common topics of interest related to wastewater treatment, energy efficiency and recovery and related innovative technologies for application at small facilities.
