Natural gas from expanded Roseville sewer plant to help fuel city vehicles

By Walter Ko, The Sacramento Bee.

Roseville City Council members voted unanimously Wednesday night to expand the city’s sewer plant and build facilities that recover energy from waste, including natural gas to power city garbage trucks.

“It provides us an opportunity to be innovative with this construction,” said Councilman Scott Alvord, who lives near the treatment plant. “The nice thing about it is that the project will cut down on odor and fuel city vehicles with recovered gas.”
