NEW Water - Beyond Compliance

NEW Water Annual Report 2017 - Page 6

NEW Water - Beyond Compliance Illuminating sustainably. Running operations to ensure nonstop community

service requires round-the-clock lighting solutions. NEW Water’s Electrical &

Instrumentation Department tackled this with sustainability in mind, garnering a

grant from Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy, and installing new LED lights throughout

the underground tunnels, and facilities. The result is an estimated 90% cost

savings in energy and lightbulbs.

Safer conditions. The Treatment Department enacted new safety measures on

the ash handling process, with a power disconnect and lockout system that

will make the procedure safer for NEW Water staff to collect samples. The

Maintenance Department commissioned a new parts washer system that is

water-based, reducing hazardous waste exposure to staff, and providing a more

environmentally friendly way to clean the equipment needed to keep the water

treatment process running smoothly.
