Delegation from Costa Rica visits Paddock Lake wastewater treatment plant

A delegation from Costa Rica visited the Paddock Lake wastewater treatment plant Wednesday morning.

The group included participants in a competition in Madison that aims to design wastewater treatment for locations in Costa Rica.

Joseph Marchese of Baxter & Woodman, the firm that designed the village’s plant, said Paddock Lake was of interest to the group due to its scale and its ease of operation. Marchese led a tour of the facility for the visitors.

Global Water Stewardship, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing sanitation in the developing world, is hosting the delegation. The group is also scheduled to visit the Milwaukee School of Engineering,
Global Water Center and tour several treatment facilities including; Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District, Brooklyn Wastewater Treatment Plant and Northern Moraine Wastewater Reclamation District.

“Our Village Board of Trustees and staff at Paddock Lake are excited to show off our treatment facility and the hard work we do every day to keep it running well,” said village administrator Tim Popanda. “We feel this exchange is a necessary part of making all water environments a better place and we hope that the Costa Rican delegation leaves with ideas that they can take back and implement in their country.”
