Wastewater Treatment Division
The Wastewater Treatment Division is responsible for the operation and maintenance of two wastewater treatment facilities. Combined, the facilities process an average of 4.3 million gallons of water per day or 1.6 billion gallons annually. This produces an effluent that not only meets, but also often out performs the National Pollution Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) permit requirements. Other functions of the Division include laboratory analysis of samples required for NPDES reporting, plant process control, industrial monitoring, and potable water analysis.
