HANFORD - Dairy technology is advancing in the 21st century with the development of innovative wastewater treatment systems that eliminate greenhouse gases and nitrates, while producing renewable energy from methane. The latest technology is bringing long-term methane emission reductions to local dairies with the recent construction of a pilot digester project, and a full-size biogas renewable energy project planned for a dairy located northeast of Hanford.
Bennett Environmental is holding a public community outreach meeting focused on the planned project and the innovative technology on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 6 p.m. in the Kit Carson Elementary School Cafeteria, located at 9895 Seventh Avenue in Hanford.
Members of the public who reside in the northeast area of Kings County, and anyone with an interest in agriculture and sustainable energy are invited to attend.
The meeting agenda will include an overview on how dairy digesters work, environmental and economic impacts of the project, and a public comment period.
