City of Ludington Water Treatment Facility
Ludington, Michigan 49431
- Three words to describe City of Ludington Water Treatment Facility: Miraculous, Fantastic, and Enduring
- Why are you nominating City of Ludington Water Treatment Facility: I am nominating the City of Ludington’s Water Treatment Facility to reveal the incredible history of this local governmental facility, give credit to our dedicated operators, and express how rewarding it is to serve the community by providing safe drinking water.
- Anything else to share? Good drinking water starts with a vision and flows from the faucet due to persistence and investment. This facility continues to be a landmark of the Ludington community, paying homage to the past while utilizing modern technology and treatment techniques. Being located on the shores of Lake Michigan in one of the most beautiful areas of Michigan certainly adds some additional ambience as well.
Jackson Wastewater Treatment Plant
Jackson, Wyoming 83001
- Three words to describe Jackson Wastewater Treatment Plant: Efficient, Innovtive, Sustainable
- Why are you nominating Jackson Wastewater Treatment Plant: I am nominating Jackson’s wastewater treatment plant because it is an innovative place that utilizes solar panels, efficient mixers, and wetlands to support our town and counties needs. The plant literally has various birds gathered on its ponds throughout the year, and if you didn’t know, you’d never guess that waster is being treated in this calm, almost sanctuary-like place. Before working for the Town of Jackson, I’d never visited a wastewater treatment plant and never imagined that one coul look like an enviromental education center, but that is literally how I describe our town’s plant.
- Anything else to share? After directing water through various treatment ponds, the treatment process is finished by filtering through wetlands managed by Ducks Unlimited. This coming summer, those wetlands will be expanded to include even more land area, support more wildlife species, and continue to improve water quality.
