The City of Scottsdale and other partners in the Valley recently celebrated the opening of a new natural gas facility at a Valley wastewater plant that could earn the cities money while benefiting the environment at the same time.

Scottsdale, Phoenix, Glendale, Mesa and Tempe are all members of the sub-regional operating group, or SROG, that owns the 91st Ave Wastewater Treatment Plant in Tolleson that cleans wastewater for reuse.

That water is used for a variety of purposes, including irrigating golf courses and cooling the Palo Verde Nuclear Power Plant.
