Upholding the Highest Standards for Clean Water
Our treatment process allows us to clean over 40 million gallons of wastewater per day and safely introduce clean, re-usable water back into the environment. This process preserves the beauty of our waterways, the purity of our streams and the integrity of our infrastructure. All in the name of advancing the quality of life in our region.
Industrial and commercial waste, like all types of waste, can seriously damage the environment if not treated or properly disposed. Our Pretreatment Department provides environmental regulatory oversight to more than 100 industrial customers and 1,700 foodservice establishments in the greater Greenville area.
We work hard to ensure all parties contributing wastewater to ReWa’s Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) remain compliant with local state and federal laws.
Inflow + Infiltration
It’s important to manage Inflow and Infiltration (I&I), which occurs when rainwater and groundwater enter the sewer system. I&I dramatically increases the water flow entering our facilities and can place a strain on the system, resulting in overflowing manholes.
By removing extra water from the collections system, we can:
- Ensure a clean environment for future generations
- Decrease the need to build new Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRF)
- Reduce the potential for sanitary sewer overflows
