Feasibility study planned for West Lafayette WWTU
The city of West Lafayette could add two new microturbines at its wastewater treatment plant.
A feasibility study will determine the cost effectiveness of the proposal.
Waste Water Treatment Utility director Dave Henderson says the two microturbines currently at the plant produce about 20% of the facility’s electricity.
He says adding two more could generate up to 50% of the plant’s power.
Henderson says a first draft of the feasibility study will likely be done within 60 days.
It’s costing the city $9,800.
