Wastewater Treatment Plant
This division operates 2 treatment plants. Our plants are staffed 24 hours a day.
The Red River Plant, an 8 MGD activated sludge treatment system utilizes the Racetrack, oxidation ditch type treatment. This plant has a flow equalization basin to help handle excessive flows, and a N-Viro system that converts the sludge to an agricultural additive. The main drying unit is located at this site.
The Northeast Plant, a 6 MGD plant utilizes the same treatment system, and the N-Viro system except for the drying unit. The product is moved to the Red River Plant for the final treatment. Our National Pollution Discharge Elimination System laboratory is located at this facility. Both treatment plants are currently under review for enhancements to accommodate future anticipated growth.
The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LADEQ) inspects both plants at a minimum of one (1) time a year.
