Creating Artificial Snow From Wastewater

A ski resort town near Yellowstone National Park is the latest example of a growing trend in water reuse — snowmaking. Rapid population growth in Big Sky, MT is depleting groundwater, the only source of drinking water for the community. At the same time, the rise in wastewater has the town’s sewage system running at capacity. And with residents fervently opposed to discharging the treated wastewater into the Gallatin River, the Big Sky Sustainable Water Solutions Forum is evaluating snowmaking as a viable option for wastewater disposal.
