BELLAIRE, Ohio (WTRF) — Eastern Ohio Regional Wastewater Authority held a ribbon cutting Tuesday at the Bellaire Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The treatment plant is boosting new technology that harvests residual energy found in wastewater.
“We wanted to look at maintaining our rate structure. So, we wanted to think outside the box of different things we could do. And this project allowed us to go off the grids. So, right off the bat, before we do anything else, we’re saving the electric cost of the plant.
-VALERIE MOORE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF EASTERN OHIO REGIONAL WASTEWATER AUTHORITY
Moore also mentioned that rates would not increase in 2020 and that the master plan was to stabilize future rates.
