Wastewater Treatment Energy Efficiency (kWh/million gallons)
This metric tracks monthly average kilowatt-hours (kWh) used per million gallons of wastewater treated at both the Mulberry and Drake Water Reclamation Facilities. The goal is to monitor, trend, plan, and reduce energy consumption on an annual basis. Efficient processes help lower the amount of electricity needed for wastewater treatment, which reduces emissions.
Why Is This Important?
Efficient processes help lower the amount of electricity needed for wastewater treatment which reduces emissions. Lowering electricity use per million gallons also generates cost savings.
City Organization Impact on Performance
– The City has a significant impact on the performance of this metric as efficiency is driven by the City’s investments in treatment technologies.
