Boston Devises Creative Way to Boost Energy and Revenue

The city of Boston is taking a proactive and collaborative approach to ensuring the best use of energy and resourcefulness of the sewer systems. A recent proposed collective effort would involve local wastewater facilities to produce fertilizer while simultaneously generating electricity. It’s expected that this process of conversion would also become a sustainable source of profitability for smaller cities and neighborhoods near Boston.

Producing electricity and capturing thermal energy closer to the source would be more efficient because it would

Of the many cities across America, Boston has been building at a slower pace. One issue is the high cost of construction, in addition to the fast-growing expense of integrating new infrastructure onto waning street and sewer systems.

Many residents have expressed optimism over recent efforts to update the

Town of Groton Seeks Water / Sewer Services

The City Council of Ayer has proposed a partnership in municipal services with the neighboring town of Groton.  The agreement would allow Groton to receive 40,500 gallons a day from the Ayer Water facility, as well as, permitting the town to implement sewer services.  There was previously a lack of wastewater capacity but through rectification, the contingency has been removed and the project will go forward.  The current agenda also includes businesses and homes, which are not currently connected to the Ayer sewer system through an existing line, to be afforded the opportunity upon completion of the proposal.  Residents can
