System optimization / energy reduction
Drinking water and wastewater facilities in the U.S. add 45 million tons of greenhouse gases annually to the environment. As much as 40 percent of operating costs for drinking water systems can be for energy. These statistics indicate the pervasive need for system optimization and energy reduction in our water and wastewater facilities.
Pursuing greater efficiencies in water and wastewater treatment isn’t enough; planning and implementing greater energy efficiencies has to be part of the equation as well. McKim & Creed’s engineers work with water and wastewater utilities to balance operational performance and treatment technologies with energy-reducing and system optimization strategies to create resource-efficient, sustainable facilities.
