Wastewater Treatment Center

When you wash your hands, flush the toilet, wash dishes, and run the laundry, all of the dirty water ends up at our Wastewater Treatment Center. It’s our job to clean that water and return it to the environment.

Biosolids

We not only clean the dirty water you send us, but we put the solids to good use too! The District processes the organic material into something called Biosolids, a free and natural fertilizer available to you.
