Wastewater is collected from residences and businesses into the District collection system and conveyed to the 7.5 MGD (million gallons per day) Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The sewage collection system consists of approximately 180-miles of sewer pipeline ranging from 6-inch to 54-inch in diameter. The District has 5 lift stations which pump wastewater from lower to higher elevations within the system such that the wastewater can gravity flow to the WWTP.
The WWTP utilizes Primary treatment and Secondary treatment technologies to treat the wastewater. All the treated WWTP effluent is recycled on adjacent irrigated farmland where it is used for the irrigation of fodder, fiber and seed crops for non-human consumption. Biosolids are treated in digesters, dewatered, stored and then applied to adjacent farmland for soil conditioning and as a fertilizer.
