Energy Savings for the Plant Operator
Author: Dan P. Norris
Date: 3/283
Presented at The Pacific Northwest Pollution Control Association Southern Oregon Regional Wastewater Systems Conference, March 1983

The former is an operation and maintenance function, and the latter is primarily a design function. The opportunities for energy conservation discussed below will not all exist in every plant, but one of them may exist in your plant.
