Wastewater Treatment

The City’s existing wastewater plant has been in service since September 1992. The new expansion was completed June 30, 2018. The average daily influent flow to the treatment plant for 2018 was 0.617 MGD (million gallons per day). The plant’s 12-month moving average organic loading is 2466 lb. BOD/day, which is 126% of plant design capacity under the current Discharge Permit. The average of the effluent ammonia analyses for the month was below the detectable limit, compared to our discharge permit limit of 5.3 mg/l. The City has submitted for a new Discharge Permit for new capacity limits. Sludge solids will continue to be composted for reuse as a soil amendment.


After the main treatment processes, wastewater solids are dewatered, mixed with wood chips and composted. The City’s compost meets all standards for EPA’s “unrestricted use” category. This compost makes a great soil amendment and is free to City residents. Call 687-6016.
