The microorganisms making up our biological treatment require protection from toxins. Our Environmental Compliance staff protects our system by monitoring, inspecting and issuing permits to ensure all dischargers meet federal, state and local regulations.
The state accredited environmental laboratory located at the treatment facility analyzes drinking water, sewage, and industrial waste, monitoring regulatory and environmental compliance.
Redundancy of equipment allows us to conduct preventative maintenance. Diesel generators provide power if electricity is interrupted. Flow equalization basins accommodate fluctuation in flow. After primary treatment, water can be temporarily diverted to these basins when volumes are higher than average, and is later returned to the system to complete treatment when the flow has reduced.
