It was expanded to include improvements at the St. Croix Valley, Eagles Point, Empire, Hastings, and Blue Lake Plants. The Eagles Point Plant project includes replacement of the existing membrane diffusers with ceramic diffusers. The Blue Lake project includes improvements to optimize digester gas production and utilization, as well as improvements to the plant’s electrical system.
