So, how do we do it?
  • 1. Waste Collection Wastewater comes from a number of sources: factories, homes, businesses & haulers.
  • 2. Mix Aeration Cell Aerated water supports bacteria which consume harmful pollutants.
  • 3. Aerated Settling Cell In this cell the solids are allowed to settle to the bottom. This improves water clarity & removes many toxic metals.
  • 4. Storage Lagoon The water then goes to storage. We have two 850-acre storage lagoons with 5.1 billion gallons of storage capacity.
  • 5. Farming The water is then used to irrigate 5,100 acres of crop land as the final treatment.
  • 5.5. Soil Soil absorbs pollutants, viruses, & mechanically strain suspended solids. Bacteria within the soil consume organic matter while the roots take up nutrients.
  • 6. Return 200 miles of underdrains to return the clean water to the Muskegon River.
