Circleville’s sanitary sewer system carries approximately 1.7 million gallons of wastewater to our treatment plant every day. This wastewater is generated by several different sources. One of those sources is your home that generates about 200 gallons of wastewater per day, and is joined in the collection system by several thousand gallons coming from businesses, industries, and institutions.
Before the wastewater reaches our plant it is in its “raw” stage, which means the water is full of pollutants such as:
Oil and grease
