Eighteen months ago, the Townsends plant in Pittsboro, N.C., was placed in a very difficult position. The plant was severely handicapped from a lack of water and its ability to dispose of its waste process water; therefore, the plant wasn’t processing as many birds as Townsends wanted. Many plant employees feared their plant would close.

“It had been an escalating problem, especially since HACCP compliance resulted in us using 30 percent more water,” says Chuck Dix, president of the Georgetown, Del.- based chicken processor. “We were using almost 60 percent of the town’s water. It wasn’t good for the city, and it wasn’t good for us.”

Faced with a difficult situation, Dix and Bill Baker, the complex engineer for the Pittsboro plant, began looking for solutions to their water situation.
