Furmano Foods Wastewater Treatment Plant
Northumberland, Northumberland County, Pa
Zartman Construction built a wastewater treatment plant which provides Furmano Foods with the capacity to grow.
The facility includes an anaerobic digester which creates methane gas which is then harnessed to generate electricity, which is used at their manufacturing facility. The amount of electricity produced is equivalent to 30 percent of their on-site use.
One of the tanks has a 7.5 million gallon capacity.
There is also equipment on site which cleans up the water to make it compliant with Chesapeake Bay mandates.
