Geographic Coverage:Mahomet, Illinois
Abstract:Energy and water are two critical resources that are highly interrelated. For example, deliver of clean drinking water and adequate sanitation of wastewater depend on reliable energy supplies. The overlap between energy and water resources and their direct relationship with public policy means that collaboration between engineers and policymakers regarding resource management and use is critically important. The village of Mahomet has been providing a good, reliable, and safe water systems to its citizens for well over seventy years but is facing substantial growth in the near future which will stress the capabilities and performance of both the existing water and energy system. In order to identify capital improvements needed to strengthen the energy efficiency of the existing water system and support future developments, a Sustainable Water Infrastructure Plan has been developed. In this study, an energy model has been development complementary with the village's existing hydrologic model as part of the Infrastructure Plan and has been used to identify improvements that will increase the transparency and efficiency of the process of decision-making.
