Wastewater Plant Operations
The current City of Nevada Wastewater Treatment Plant is a two-stage trickling filter facility with grit and screenings removal, primary, intermediate and final clarification. Solids are processed by anaerobic digestion and land application of liquid bio-solids.
The average wet weather design of the facility is 2.39 million gallons per day, and the maximum wet weather design is 7.53 million gallons per day.
The current City of Nevada Wastewater Treatment Plant has been just north of Highway 30 and east of Sixth Street since 1961. Major upgrades to increase the capacity of the plant were completed in 1986, 1994 and 2004. Smaller projects to replace equipment and enhance performance were completed in 2007 and 2008.
The City is presently in the midst of building a new Wastewater Treatment Plant south of the City limits. The new plant is expected to open November 2023. Read more here City’s new Waste Water Treatment Facility update – Nevada News.
