The facility, which UConn says is the first of its kind in the region, will treat wastewater using microfiltration and ultraviolet disinfection and then use that reclaimed water to cool the turbines at the university’s cogeneration power plant. Before the facility was built, the power plant used upwards of 450,000 gallons of potable water each day.
