Chesaning’s Wastewater Treatment Plant

Chesaning’s Wastewater Treatment Plant’s (WWTP) primary responsibility is to safely transport and treat wastewater before returning it to the area waterway. The goal of wastewater treatment in any community is to eliminate disease-causing bacteria and to protect the environment for human and aquatic life. Before modern methods of wastewater treatment were introduced, the spread of life-threatening diseases was common in most communities across the country. As we have learned more about the importance of protecting our natural resources, wastewater treatment has become an obvious defense against water pollution. Wastewater treatment has been called the “last line of defense” against water pollution.
