    Project Type 1:  Reduce the number of sanitary sewerage overflows (SSOs) and the volume of gallons discharged into the environment.  Grant funding can be used to install programmable logic controller (PLC) or supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, at an operations critical pump station location(s) of the sewer collection system.  Or for the purchase and installation of a backup generator for a critical pump station that has exhibited historical SSOs.

    Project Type 2:  Reduce on grid energy consumption and aid in phosphorus removal from wastewater ponds by utilizing grant funding to install solar powered mixers in wastewater ponds.  This equipment uses solar power instead of grid power.  Benefits derived from their installation typically include phosphorus reduction in the effluent, when used in conjunction with a chemical feed system.
