When you flush your toilet or run water down the drain, where does it go? Well, in most cases it ends up at your municipal wastewater treatment facility, where it is cleaned and returned for the public’s use. But what if you could take the byproducts from that wastewater—and add other byproducts like expired beer or brewing residue—and turn it into energy? Tune in as Pat Shea and Tracy Hodel of St. Cloud talk about how they are doing just that with their city’s state-of-the-art, award-winning Nutrient, Energy, and Water Recovery Facility. And your host, LMC Education Manager Adriana Temali-Smith, will find out what beer has to do with it.
