Utah State University Teams Up With Water Treatment Company For Research

Nov 20, 2014

A Salt Lake City-based water treatment company with offices around the world is set to open a new facility, partnering with Utah State University. WesTech has hired a growing number of Utah State biological and environmental engineering graduates in recent years. The company aims to use the new facility at the university’s Innovation Campus to continue its research into turning water waste into resources.

In a released statement, the selection of North Logan as the location for the new facility reflects the success of Utah State's College of Engineering and the desire to allow graduates to stay in Cache Valley, said Floyd Griffiths of WesTech.

“WesTech has some really great talent that has come from Utah State. Cache Valley is a great area and some graduates want to stay,” he said. “This allows our prospective employees the opportunity to work for WesTech without the need to uproot and move to Salt Lake City.”

An open house is scheduled for Friday at the Algae Processing and Products Facility in North Logan.
