Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Camdenton Wastewater Treatment Plant provides the City with a safe and efficient means of transporting the City's wastewater to the wastewater treatment plant.   The treatment plant consists of a new oxidation ditch system, that has a capacity of 640,000 gallons per day, with the current usage running at less than 75% capacity. This will allow the City to grow without concerns for wastewater capacity.

Infrastructure includes 34 lift stations, an ultra-violet disinfection system, two (2) 119,000 gallon sludge holding basins, lab building, storage and maintenance building, and a 3,000 gallon capacity sludge truck.

The Sewer Department recognizes the importance of responsible and safe wastewater transportation and treatment to the public health and safety and the importance of fiscal responsibility. The Department of Natural Resources requires treatment plants to be 95.5% efficient; Camdenton is running at 97.3% efficiency.
