APPLETON - A new boiler system installed in 2011 at Appleton's wastewater treatment plant is paying dividends for taxpayers, yielding $300,000 in energy savings annually.

The $1.2 million methane system captures the byproduct of the bacterial breakdown of sludge to operate the boiler and heat the rest of the plant.
