Wastewater

“The City of Hutchinson’s Wastewater department shall strive to provide safe, affordable, quality service to our customers, protect and preserve the environment, while maintaining or exceeding all Federal and State regulations “

 

The Hutchinson Wastewater Facility was placed in service in 1988 and is classified as a ‘Class A’ facility.

Wastewater Plant

In 2008 a major expansion was completed to accommodate community growth and industrial expansion. Designed to treat an average 3.67 million gallons per day (MGD) of wastewater, the facility will meet the wastewater treatment needs of the city through the year of 2028. There are 13 lift stations and over 75 miles of gravity sanitary sewer lines throughout Hutchinson. The wastewater treatment facility continually undergoes changes as new technologies and ever more stringent state and federal environmental regulations come into place. The treatment facility has several features, which allow it to meet Hutchinson’s specific needs for variable flows and operational flexibility. Biological and Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) processes are used to remove impurities from the wastewater and achieve a level of treatment well above that which is mandated by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).

The Facility has a staff of six people that include: Wastewater Supervisor, Operator, Laboratory Technician, Administrative/Lab Assistant, and two Maintenance personnel.
