Wastewater Treatment Facilities
Managed By: Icon Here Ye Olde Turd Mill
Description:
Wastewater collection and treatment is the ultimate "Cinderella Service". Greatly under funded/appreciated, it has been the single greatest advancement in public health in the history of mankind. We each produce about 100 gallons of wastewater a day and yet it all disappears down the drain never to be seen again. So where does this vile stuff go and how is it reclaimed? This category is a technical catalog of Wastewater Treatment Facilities around the world.
Expanded Description:
For a good, general description of a common wastewater treatment process (Activated Sludge), visit the Water Environment Federation's Website.

While the concepts presented are consistent across most treatment technologies many variations have evolved and can be found in treatment facilities all over the world. For example variations of the Activated sludge process may include: Oxidation Ditches, Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBR), Membrane Bio-reactors (MBR) or Rotating Biological Reactor (RBR).

Wastewater Treatment Facilities generally fall into three categories (although there are more): Activated Sludge, Trickling Filters and Lagoons. Again, each category has several variations.

Instructions for Posting a Wastewater Treatment Facilities Waymark:
This category does not include on-site wastewater treatment systems (septic systems). Please submit only systems that are supported by multiple users and have an NPDES permit (are point source dischargers).

Please post at least 2 original photographs of the site. We would much rather see photos of the plant itself as opposed to the front office, but we also understand that security and site layout may limit your opportunities. Use of internet photos as supplemental information is encouraged.

Waymark Naming: Please use the formal name of the facility along with the City/Town/State/Country as appropriate. Some acceptable examples include:

North City Water Reclamation Plant - San Diego, CA, USA
Pocotaligo WWTP - Sumter, SC, USA
Nordkanal/Kaarst Wastewater Treatment Plant - Kaarst, Germany

Please note that five of the seven category variables are REQUIRED. We WILL NOT ACCEPT "I don't know" or "unknown" types of answers for mandatory variables. Please do your research before submitting to this category.
