Wastewater Division

WHAT's New In Wastewater:

Your Wastewater Department’s primary task is to manage and maintain the city’s sewer system. Additionally, this team has also taken on the responsibility of conducting water break cleanups. As we move into summer and the weather improves this team will continue to restore the areas affected to the same condition before repairs were made. This includes bringing the area to grade and seeding as needed.

Design for a single Wastewater Plant to serve two communities…

The City of Box Elder and the Ellsworth Air Force Base were each operating their wastewater treatment facilities at capacity and had to satisfy more stringent effluent limits for ammonia. Both entities needed wastewater treatment facility upgrades. And they needed to find the most cost-effective way to do it.  A new wastewater plant was designed to satisfy the regulatory requirements and future growth accommodations for both the City and the Air Force Base. The single wastewater treatment plant serving both the City and the Base resulted in a $10 million savings over creating single plants for each.
