The city of Grand Rapids is saving energy and money for its residents after installing a Hach Real-Time Control System in its wastewater treatment plant, receiving a $58,728 rebate check in 2013 from their local public utility, after upgrading the wastewater treatment plant’s aeration system, including installing a Hach Company Real-Time Control (RTC) System.

The plant is on track to save the city more than 735,000 kilowatt hours of electricity and $62,000 annually, according to Grand Rapids Mayor, George Heartwell. The return on investment and reduction in energy usage has been significant. Grand Rapids wastewater plant has saved 15 percent in aeration energy costs since installing the RTC nitrification system in June and has given the facility better control of their effluent, according to Mike Lunn, the treatment plant’s Environmental Services Director.
