West County Wastewater serves several communities in California’s Richmond area. The organization owns, operates and maintains a wastewater collection system with 249 miles of gravity sewer pipelines, 17 lift stations, 6 miles of pressure force mains, and a water quality and resource recovery plant with a capacity of 12.5 million gallons per day. The utility aims to encourage healthy industrial and environmental practices that will benefit the region and its communities.

West County Wastewater’s Board of Directors set aggressive goals to reduce its carbon footprint and wider greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, the board wanted to ready the organization for the implementation of state regulations on short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) and reduce ongoing disposal costs. To meet these challenges, West County Wastewater set out on a comprehensive energy, infrastructure and process improvement program, led by its partner ENGIE North America. ENGIE will implement the plant improvements and maintain the installed equipment over the next 20 years under an energy savings performance contract. 

ENGIE and West County Wastewater are collaborating on what will be a best-practice model for sustainable water treatment.
