At the Water Pollution Control Facility, our highly trained, NY State certified staff ensure sewage and water are cleaned so that they can be returned to the environment at standards defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Water Pollution Control Facility removed solids and pollutants, breaks down organic matter and restores the oxygen content of treated water. They achieve these results through three sets of operations: premliminary, secordary and sludge treatment processes. On average, the Water Pollution Control Facility processes 500,000 to 600,000 gallons of wastewater per day. Further questions or to request a tour of the facility please contact Waste Water Treatment Plant at (607) 561-2330.
