Wastewater treatment is a process used to remove contaminants from wastewater or sewage and convert it into an effluent that can be returned to the water cycle with acceptable impact on the environment, or reused for various purposes. The treatment process takes place in a wastewater treatment plant, also referred to as a Water Resource Recovery Facility or a Sewage Treatment Plant in the case of domestic wastewater. Pollutants in wastewater are removed, converted or broken down during the treatment process.
The Durant Municipal Waste Water Treatment Plant located at 1222 Davis Road holds the capacity to treat 3.55 MGD (Million Gallons per Day).
Currently we are treating approximately 3.05 MGD on average.
