Biological Wastewater Treatment — Effective and Environmentally Sound
*See the answer to our Facebook quiz here. The treatment photos are from our Kanapaha Water Reclamation Facility. You can learn more about that facility below.
GRU has two wastewater treatment facilities:
Our process for treating wastewater or "reclaiming water" is a tried-and-true technological method that uses biological microorganisms that feed on the wastewater. These "bugs" actually do the work — we simply provide the right biological environment for them to thrive.
Then using state-of-the-art equipment, we harvest the organic microorganisms and convert them into a biosolids fertilizer for local agricultural use.
