The Moundsville Wastewater Treatment Plant in West Virginia chooses not to fix a broken blower unit, but rather to correct an outdated approach. The result is a savings of $50-60K a year in energy costs.
Moundsville, West Virginia is a small city located along the Ohio River. It is home to sites like Prabhupada’s Palace of Gold and the retired West Virginia State Penitentiary. Like any other US city, Moundsville is also home to a wastewater treatment plant that actively supports the community’s sewage treatment needs. The plant mainly goes unnoticed… a sign that it is doing its job well.
