Why MCWMS

Since 1973, this treatment plant has demonstrated remarkable treatment performance in handling wastewater from firms engaged in pulp and paper manufacturing, organic chemical manufacturing, plastic moulding, food and food processing, foundries, metal forming and finishing, and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
An automatic scale system and sloped discharge area large enough for six trucks allow the haulers to complete deliveries quickly. Septic tank, grease trap, agricultural processing, and other difficult-to-treat industrial trucked waste is processed at the Muskegon Plant for the low price of 5.0 – 5.8 cents per gallon for waste that is up to 10% Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) or Total Suspended Solids (TSS) by weight.

Please contact our Industrial Pre-treatment Program at 231-724-3447 to discuss the steps necessary to discharge.

In general, the waste must be tested to determine its treatability, and a permit application must be submitted.
