New facility has benefits for community
Willmar Minnesota 2208 Trott Ave. SW / P.O. Box 839 56201

The facility has new and redundant systems to meet new water quality effluent limits for removal of phosphorus and ammonia.

Higher quality effluent is released into Hawk Creek within the Minnesota River Basin. This will help improve water quality in Hawk Creek, the Minnesota River at Shakopee and the Mississippi River to reduce overall phosphorus loading to Lake Pepin.

The new facility now provides sufficient capacity for local industries to expand and for the City of Willmar to grow for many years.

Odors will be reduced considerably with the new processes and demolition of the old wastewater treatment facility.
