Wastewater Treatment

WWTP.JPGThe Woodland Park Wastewater Treatment Plant is designed to treat up to 0.893 million gallons per day (MGD). Ammonia removal is a special requirement to protect Trout Creek as a cold-water fishery. Recent slow growth has allowed the City to postpone the second phase of a planned 2-phase expansion project. The first phase, improvements to the headworks, was completed in 2011.   New screening and grit removal equipment added as part of phase 1 provide improved protection for downstream processes. When completed, Phase 2  will add filtration to further protect the receiving stream, Trout Creek, and water conservation will pay off in the expansion with less hydraulic capacity required. The plant currently serves a population of about 8,700.  The expanded plant will have capacity to serve about 14,000.

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.
