Bloomington Mayor presents wastewater to natural gas conversion initiative

February 22, 2019. A new Bloomington, Indiana, task force will evaluate converting compostable organic material at the city’s wastewater plant into compressed natural gas (CNG) to fuel public vehicles.

   Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton revealed the plan during his annual State of the City Address Thursday night at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.

   “This is a complex and expensive challenge, but one we ought to tackle together," Hamilton says. "I’ll ask for a report within a year to recommend a path forward.”
