The South Central Wastewater Authority Treatment Plant was originally constructed in 1955 and has been upgraded and expanded in the mid 1970s. The most recent expansion program was inaugurated in the early 1990s as an upgrade of facilities expanding the treatment capacity to 20,000,000 gallons per day and providing a higher level of treatment. The multi-phased construction program cost approximately $30,000,000 and has resulted in a modern, advanced wastewater treatment facility.
The treatment plant will serve both residential and industrial growth for the community well into the 21st century. The investment made into these facilities is one which will provide continuing benefits for future generations to enjoy.
