What if the owners of municipalities could simultaneously help the environment and create a revenue stream that could offset costs?

Nutrient recovery systems allow owners to do just that. In this blog, we'll use a recent Haskell project, the Opequon Water Reclamation Facility in Winchester, Virginia, to highlight the benefits of a nutrient recovery system.

Frederick-Winchester Service Authority (FWSA) Needs Cost-Effective Solution

In order to provide benefits to taxpayers, the Frederick-Winchester Service Authority (FWSA) needed to leverage project cost savings to cover its debt service. As a result, FWSA selected Haskell to deliver infrastructure improvements at the Opequon Water Reclamation Facility to stabilize rates for its customers and promote economic development in the Winchester, Frederick-County area.

One Plant’s Trash is Another Plant’s Treasure

Phosphorous causes algae growth and reduces dissolved oxygen in waterways. It is also a rare element that is an essential ingredient for fertilizer and crop production. With this insight, the Haskell team commissioned an Ostara© Phosphorous recovery system that collects the majority of the phosphorous from the solids dewatering filtrate waste stream.
