State Park unveils eco frienldly WWTP
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources on Wednesday unveiled the Indiana Dunes State Park’s innovative new wastewater treatment facility.
The plant is among the first 10 in the U.S. using the Algewheel, an Indianapolis-manufactured product. The treatment plant uses algae to help bacteria clean the water, produces less carbon dioxide, less solid wastes and uses 75% less energy than the previous plant, officials said.
The system treats all of the wastewater generated within the state park and replaces a 40 year old plant that became too cost-prohibitive to maintain, according to the IDNR.
