City's flushes have sweet smell of savings

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The staff at the Chiefland Water Reclamation Plant, the place where every toilet flush meets it end, have turned off two 40-horsepower fans that keep the smell down on the sludge digester.

It sounds like a pretty noxious idea.

But a change in the way sludge is separated from 168,000 to 170,000 gallons of wastewater daily means the smell emanating from the plant is that of money saved on the electric bill, blowers that no longer need maintenance, and less use of a petroleum-based chemical whose cost has been rising with crude oil prices.
