Press conference with Mayor Dan Horrigan

Water Reclamation Facility Step Feed Phase II


Mayor Dan Horrigan and City officials announced the early completion and subsequent cost savings and additional environmental benefits of the Step Feed Phase 2 project.

As of today (02/25/19), approximately 335 million gallons of wastewater have been provided a higher level of treatment due to the WRF Step Feed Phase 2 project. In total, completion of both phases of the project have resulted in a higher level of treatment of more than 727 million gallons of wastewater.

“The Step Feed pilot program demonstrated a culture of sustainability by using an existing facility to its maximum capacity and reduce energy and maintenance costs. Between the pilot program and Phase 2, we have exceeded our environmental obligations and greatly increased treatment capacity at the Water Reclamation Facility during large rainwater events.” - Mayor Horrigan
