Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Carthage Wastewater Treatment Plant treats more than 3 million gallons of wastewater per day while maintaining more than 100 miles of sewer mains in our collection system. With more than 5,000 customers, both residential and commercial, we pride ourselves in delivering exceptional customer service while ensuring compliance with all effluent limitations as outlined in our state operating permit through 100% biological treatment. Our Industrial Pretreatment Program issues individual permits to significant users with limitations and monitoring requirements specific to each industry. Our staff serves as the control authority to monitor and enforce compliance to each permit. The following illustrates our wastewater treatment process.
