The Pendleton-Clemson Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant has the capacity to treat 2.0 MGD. The Treatment Plant is an Extended Aeration Activated Sludge System that incorporates a series of selector zones prior to the main aeration basins to control excessive growth of filamentous bacteria. The phosphorus removal system consists of chemical treatment and rapid mixing of the effluent from the aeration basins to complex dissolved phosphates into particulates, which are subsequently removed in the clarifiers along with the mixed liquor suspended solids, transferred from the aeration basins. Residual BOD and Orthophosphate Solids are captured by tertiary cloth filters, and the effluent passes through Ultra Violet disinfection channel and post aeration prior to its discharge into Eighteen-Mile Creek. The waste activated sludge (biosolids) withdrawn from the clarifiers is stabilized and thickened in aerobic digester tanks, prior to being land applied on agricultural fields or dewatered in sand drying beds. Local Farmers benefit by the Land Application of the biosolids, for their fields.
Our vision is to be the Water quality protector on the frontline of the water pollution battle.
The Pendleton-Clemson Regional Wastewater Treatment plant will protect the environment and the public health of our community by excellent treatment, proper disposal of solids and a discharge that will not endanger downstream water users.
