Sewage Disposal in the City of Ellsworth

Wastewater in the City of Ellsworth is pumped from ten sewage lift stations located throughout the city to a Biolac activated sludge plant.  The wastewater plant was completed in early 2010 and has capacity to treat up to 500,000 gallons per day.  Daily sewage volumes have averaged 314,000 gallons per day throughout the last decade.  The plant operates in series with the existing waste stabilization ponds to meet Kansas discharge permit requirements.
