The Town of Hinesburg asked Yellow Wood Associates, Inc. to research alternative ways of increasing their wastewater capacity beyond expanding the plant, using their Green Community Technologies process. Hinesburg, Yellow Wood, and Stone Environmental worked together with the goal of allowing Hinesburg to manage a larger volume of wastewater (from 250,000 to 400,000 gallons per day or GPD) that would meet the discharge requirements of the state. The options arrived at by Yellow Wood will avoid the need to enlarge the existing footprint of the wastewater treatment plant.
