Waste Water Plant Operations
Waste Water Plant Operations provides our customers with a system capable of treating their domestic and industrial wastewater, using methods that meet or exceed all regulatory standards and requirements. SRU has two major treatment facilities, Grant Creek WWTP and Town Creek WWTP, which combine to treat an average of about seven million gallons of wastewater each day. After thorough treatment, this wastewater is discharged into the Yadkin River.
Our wastewater treatment staff recently received the Platinum seven Award from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies. This recognizes seven consecutive years of being 100% compliant with our National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. We were one of only 133 facilities nationwide to receive this award and one of only 6 is the state of North Carolina.
