The municipal wastewater treatment plant for Wilton, Maine, a community of 4,200, received one of two national awards for energy conservation in 1975. The plant includes primary and secondary sewage treatment processes and supporting laboratory, administrative and maintenance services. The design incorporated integrated use and control of heat producing systems, including solar and methane utilization for heat and electricity. Siting considerations and building layout also play primary roles in efficient energy generation and distribution.
