Wastewater Treatment

The Wastewater Treatment Department is accountable for processing all wastewater entering the facility in a safe, cost-effective and timely manner. This includes effectively operating a biological treatment process, a solids process that includes concentrators, presses, a low-pressure oxidation system, a fluid bed incinerator, and a generator that produces electricity with steam produced by the burning of by-products. The department is also accountable for the scrubbing of odors before being discharged into the atmosphere and the continued search for and elimination of all potential odors.
