Current Statistics

The Wastewater Treatment Plant is designed to treat up to an average daily flow of 500,000 gallons of wastewater a day. Currently it treats an average of 360,000 gallons a day. After treatment has been completed, the wastewater is discharged to the Grand River. Fifty-9 tons of solids are removed from the wastewater each year and applied to farmland as a fertilizer and soil conditioner. The WWTP department is responsible for all operations and maintenance of the WWTP, three lift stations, and routine maintenance of the 25 miles of collection system. We operate with a team of 3 full-time City employees:  Doug Sherman, Class B operator; Mike Owen, Class C operator; and Tim Krizov, Class C operator.
