The Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) has reached a major milestone in the planning process: 60% design.  This means decisions on some of the newest, most sustainable technologies in wastewater treatment have been finalized; sites for buildings and process equipment have been found; and visionary landscaping that showcases coastal agrarian vernacular and demonstration wetlands have been conceptualized.  The beginning of November marked a fast-paced, total immersion in 60% design documents with over 8,000 pages of text and schematics to review, eliciting more than 900 comments for the design engineers to incorporate.
