Western Regional Water Reclamation Facility

Western Regional is SD1’s newest wastewater treatment facility. Operational in 2012, Western cleans water from most of Boone County and portions of Kenton County, alleviating demand from Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Western Regional uses ultraviolet light to disinfect water before release and odor biofilter technology to help control odors. It takes about 27 hours for wastewater to go through the treatment process at Western Regional.

Western Regional treats an average flow of about 8 million gallons per day, and has a flow capacity of about 20 million gallons per day. The facility services more than 26,650 accounts.
