We use a conventional surface water treatment method to produce safe, potable drinking water for our community.
Wastewater Collection System
The wastewater collection system in Maysville is comprised of 25 wastewater pump stations and more than 75 miles of gravity sewer mains. Sewage travels through the collection system by gravity until it reaches a sewer pump station. At that point, it is pumped to a higher point from which it will travel by gravity again until it reaches the treatment plant.
Wastewater Treatment Plant
The utility commission operates a vertical loop reactor wastewater treatment plant that with a capacity to handle 3.4 million gallons per day. The plant is classified by the Kentucky Division of Water as a Class III Wastewater Treatment Plant.
