Yellow Wood Associates, Inc. worked with the Town of Richmond, Vermont to inventory and assess municipal infrastructure assets and provide options for future investment based on a comparative analysis of alternative technologies versus conventional technologies in six primary areas: alternative fuels for town vehicles; stormwater source reduction options such as alternative paving regimes; a retrofit of its town building for increased energy efficiency; more efficient pumps and motors for a planned upgrade to the wastewater treatment plant; and repair and replacement technologies for water and wastewater pipes.
