How much wastewater is treated on a daily basis?

The average daily flow is 350,000 gallons.

The normal holding capacity of the wastewater treatment plant is 1.2 million gallons. However, it is capable of successfully treating 2.2 million gallons in emergency situations. Only wastewater that goes into the sanitary sewer system goes to the treatment plant. Rainwater that goes into the storm sewers is discharged directly to the river without being treated.
