Services Detail

The Indian Hills Wastewater treatment plant was first put into service in 2000. Our plant is a Intermittent Cycle Extended Aeration System which uses fine air diffusers to provide Dissolved oxygen to the micro-biology. At maximum capacity the plant can treat 600,000 gallons a day, but currently we are treating approximately 300,000 gallons daily.











WITH EACH AND EVERY FLUSH SOME RESIDENTS ARE DOING SOMETHING THAT COULD COST THEM AND THE DISTRICT A LOT OF MONEY. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THOSE SO-CALLED "FLUSHABLE" WIPES. DESPITE WHAT MANUFACTURERS CLAIM, THE WIPES EVEN THE ONE THAT SAY FLUSHABLE, DO NOT DISSOLVE. THEY GET TANGLED IN PUMPS AND PIPES AND CLOG THEM. THE WIPES ARE NOT BIODEGRADABLE SO THEY DO NOT BREAK DOWN IN SEWAGE SYSTEMS. THIS HAS BECOME A NATIONAL EPIDEMIC; SEWER AGENCIES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE EXPERIENCING THE SAME PROBLEM. A CONSUMER REPORTS STUDY TESTED SEVERAL BRANDS OF WIPES LABELED FLUSHABE AND FOUND THAT, WHILE TOILET PAPER DISINTERGRATED AFTER ABOUT 8 SECONDS, MANY WIPES STLL HADN'T BROKEN DOWN AFTER 30 MINUTES OF AGITATION. WE ARE STILL EXPERIENCING SOME MECHANICAL ISSUES WITH PUMPS AT OUR SEWER LIFT STATIONS. THE PUMPS ARE BEING PLUGGED DUE TO A HEAVY LOAD OF FLUSHABLE BABY WIPES, ADULT WIPES AND DISIFECNTANT/CLEANING WIPES BEING FLUSHED INTO OUR SYSTEM. THIS IS DIMINISHING THE PUMPING CAPACITY OF THE PUMPS. PLEASE REFRAIN FROM FLUSHING ANY FOREIGN OBJECTS INTO THE SEWER SYSTEM. NO WIPES IN THE PIPES. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION IN THIS MATTER.
