We are moving forward with design of upgrades to the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant, originally constructed in 1971. Construction of these improvements is scheduled to start in Fall of 2021.

What is the Reason for this Project?

Stevenson’s treatment plant is old, and needs major upgrades and expansion to comply with federal and state regulations – and to meet our community’s current and future needs.

Economic Development

The current treatment plant is over capacity, and cannot support continued economic (and residential) growth. Industrial and commercial users contribute large loads to our treatment plant, but also provide our community with jobs and other economic benefits. We are working closely with our industrial and commercial users to ensure that upgrades to the treatment plant meet their needs.
