Illinois Environmental Protection Agency Director John J. Kim has announced the award of approximately $422,000 in grant funding to four Illinois wastewater treatment facilities as part of the Office of Energy’s Wastewater Treatment Plant Energy Efficiency Program. The funded projects will reduce the amount of energy consumed by wastewater treatment operations, thereby reducing energy costs for Illinois residents.
“We are pleased to assist these municipal wastewater organizations with funding to achieve the already identified energy efficiency improvements,” said Kim. “These grants will reduce energy demand as well as operating costs.”
