Welcome to the Kalamazoo Water Reclamation Plant (KWRP), the community's sewage treatment facility. Our job is to clean up the dirty water that flows through approximately 600 miles of sewer lines throughout Kalamazoo and the surrounding area. The design of the KWRP is critical to development of the metropolitan area surrounding Kalamazoo. This section covers the physical and biological components of the plant.
The process of wastewater treatment can be fascinating if you are interested in biology, the environment, or physical science. If you want to learn what happens to water after it goes down the drain, check out this topic.
We will protect and improve the environment by reaching beyond compliance toward excellence in environmental stewardship by providing quality service for downstream users and future generations.
It is our mission to maintain compliance and create a culture of environmental stewardship through proactive collaboration in regulatory oversight, support, and public outreach/education.
