Re: Power Generation from Wastewater

The sewer list [ http://www.swopnet.com/engr/mail_lists/sewer_list_info.html ] discussed the topic several months ago.  You may want to post your request there if you haven't already.

I have seen reports where municipal wastewater treatment plants have
generated power by placing turbines in their discharge works.  However, I
cannot seem to find these reports now that I would like to see them again.
Can anyone point me to a URL?  With the cost of power these days, many
large wastewater generators (e.g., paper mills) might be very interested in
reducing their demand on the grid.  I appreciate your help.
