ENERGY USAGE
 Municipal water supply and wastewater
treatment systems are among the most
energy-intensive facilities owned and
operated by local governments, accounting
for about 35% of energy used by
municipalities.
 Approximately 60% of the energy in a
wastewater treatment facility is used to make
low pressure air.
