Originally constructed in 1994 and upgraded in 2008, the treatment capacity is 32 million gallons of wastewater per day. WRF provides treatment ranging from biological removal of organics, solids,  ammonia and phosphorus. Additional phosphorus is removed chemically followed by filtration. Ultraviolet light is used to disinfect the treated water and chlorination/dechlorination is used to backup the UV system. The plant design centers around the activated sludge process which provides biological treatment.
