Wastewater Treatment Plants

The greenhouse gas reduction strategy for wastewater treatment plants focuses on methane reduction and beneficial reuse projects as well as energy efficiency improvements to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) core operations.  Projects completed since 2006 and projects underway will reduce DEP's carbon footprint by 236,310 metric tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions per year.
