Phase I of the WWTP, consisting of a secondary treatment aerated lagoon with two cells divided by a baffle, a storage lagoon, and an effluent pump station with a control building, was put into operation in 2004. The Phase II expansion added two sequential batch reactors to the treatment processes, which was put in operation at the end of 2015. The combined Phase II treatment capacity of the WWTP is 600,000 gallons per day (gpd). The Phase III expansion will increase the treatment capacity to 800,000 gpd and is expected to start construction in 2022.
Disposal of effluent, treated water that leaves the WWTP facility, is handled through land application at 37 spray and drip irrigation areas located within and around the newly constructed residential developments.
