Gas From Garbage Heading to Medical Clinic
Right about this time next year, garbage gas will be keeping it warm at a local medical clinic. Approvals are in place for a three million dollar gas pipeline from the La Crosse county landfill. La Crosse county sustainability coordinator, Nick Nichols says the methane gas will get pumped underground to the Gundersen Lutheran clinic in Onalaska. The clinic will use the gas for electricity and heating. Marks the first time the methane that the landfill produces has been used for anything productive. It's two miles of six-inch gas pipeline, buried five feet down.
