To keep up with the wastewater industry, I read several periodicals and my favorite is Treatment Plant Operator, partially due to its recognition of the real workers in the wastewater industry – the operators.

This month, it featured an article titled “New Paradigms for Energy,” a story about a WERF team exploring how to reduce energy dependence at treatment plants.  It’s evidence of how the wastewater industry is moving towards resource recovery – of clean water, energy and fertilizer. (The article was particularly interesting to me because I serve on the WERF Issues Area Team for Energy Management, which provides oversight.)
