Staff Photo: John Bohn The F. Wayne Hill Water Resources Center in Buford has a new gas-to-energy project, which converts recovered methane to internally produced electrical power, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in power costs to the plant annually. Methane is recovered as a product of the digestion process of waste that occurs in large vessels referred to as eggs, shown here. A gas engine burns the recovered methane to provide electrical power to the water resources center.
