Waste Water Treatment Plant and Process

Waste Water Treatment is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater, primarily from household sewage. It includes physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove these contaminants and produce environmentally safe treated wastewater (or treated effluent).

The Town of Waynesville's waste water treatment plant was built in the 1965 and had expansions completed in 1979 and 1984.  Treatment improvements including laboratory monitoring equipment were completed in 1984, 1995 and 2001.  The current permit for the waste water treatment facility allows treatment of up to 6 million gallons of waste water daily.
