    Theoretically it could happen, but no municipality has one in place yet.

    The energy in the sewer comes from the poop. Methane. “Biodegradable solid waste is sent to large tanks, called digesters, that provide a home for three to four weeks. There bacteria eat away at the waste, releasing methane gas and further reducing the amount of solid waste.”
