ENERGY EFFICIENCY 

 

Energy audit/benchmarking conducted to identify priorities for energy efficiency improvements  

 

‘Energy teams’ established and individuals empowered within the utility for energy efficiency 
activities (e.g., an “energy advocate” or “energy champion”)   

 

Utilization of energy conserving operational methods (e.g., optimization of primary 
sedimentation to reduce utilization of pure oxygen)

ENERGY GENERATION & RECOVERY 

 

Internal energy sources evaluated (e.g., biogas, hydropower, heat in wastewater), and/or 
renewable energy sources evaluated on an ongoing basis (e.g., solar, wind, co-digestion)  

 

Recovery of digester gas in a combined heat and power (CHP) system, and boilers in place (for 
process and building heating)

WATERSHED STEWARDSHIP 

 

Unified vision statement established that integrates water supply, water conservation, water 
recycling, runoff management, wastewater facilities planning, and infrastructure planning using 
a regional watershed approach.   

 

Watershed permitting strategy for multiple facilities (e.g., active nutrient water quality trading 
under a watershed-based permit)  

 

Climate impact resilience principles incorporated into planning for new, repair, and replacement 
of infrastructure.
