By Conway Jones Nancy Stoner, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Acting Assistant Administrator of the Office of Water, toured EBMUD’s wastewater treatment facility in Oakland with Katy Foulkes, Vice President, EBMUD Board of Directors, as part of a nationwide tour to highlight the use of innovative technology in addressing water challenges. EBMUD was the first sewage treatment facility in the nation to convert post-consumer food scraps to energy and is a national model for large-scale energy production at wastewater treatment facilities. The tour demonstrated the process of turning wastewater gas capture into energy and displayed wastewater odor-suppression technology. Ms. Stoner said, “EPA is committed to fostering the development and use of innovative technology to advance the agency’s goal of clean and safe water and sustainable water utilities.” Earlier this year, EPA released a blueprint that highlights the agency’s plans to advance and promote technology innovation across various EPA water programs.
