 Muskegon, MI – Muskegon County Wastewater Management System (MCWMS) has launched a marketing campaign to attract new business opportunities to the area. The campaign will target food processing companies, liquid waste haulers and datacenter companies.

The campaign will feature a website (www.muskegoncountywastewatertreatment.com) for businesses to learn more about the Muskegon County Wastewater Management System. Website visitors will also be able to locate permitting forms and view available property for development. The new website features social media plugins and an added blog and newsletter sign up form. Other materials to support marketing efforts will include a new MCWMS brochure, promotional video and an interactive infographic depicting how water is treated at MCWMS.

“The goal of these marketing efforts is to increase engagement and potential business opportunities”, says Jonathan Wilson, Economic Development Coordinator for Muskegon County.

In addition to these marketing efforts, MCWMS is looking to take advantage of its ample space, power, water and connectivity to attract data center companies to the property. “We have been exploring the potential to support data center operations and feel we have more than enough space and infrastructure to support this type of operation on the property”, says Wilson.
