World’s Most Gorgeous Sewage Treatment Plant Will be Put INSIDE an Office Building – CleanTechnica: Cleantech innovation news and viewsA new office building for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission is going to be home to a whole raft of green building technologies that are becoming pretty familiar, along with something a little unexpected: a beautifully disguised “green” sewage treatment plant right plunk in the middle of the lobby. Talk about hiding in plain sight! The installation, designed by the company Worrell Water Technologies , is integrated into the lobby design as well as exterior landscaping. Constructed Wetlands for Wastewater Treatment The installation is basically a constructed wetland , which is a wastewater treatment system that breaks down pollutants with plants and naturally occurring biological processes. The result isn’t necessarily potable quality, but it’s good enough for irrigation , maintenance, and other res-uses such as toilet flushing.

The “treatment plant” will be disguised as a beautifully landscaped, man-made wetland environment that purifies wastewater through natural processes.
