The City of Canyonville provides wastewater collection
and treatment services to the residents and businesses
within the City's urban growth boundary (UGB). By
consistently and effectively providing these services, the
City protects the water quality and supports the
beneficial use of the South Umpqua River. The major
elements of the City's wastewater infrastructure includes
the sanitary collection system and the wastewater
treatment plant (WWTP).
Our new Wastewater Plant is now finished. It is a state of the art Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) Facility. When used with domestic wastewater the MBR processes can produce effluent of high quality enough to be discharged to waterways or to be reclaimed for urban irrigation. At our facility the effluent is being reclaimed and used in the processing of the wastewater. Other advantages of MBRs over conventional processes include small footprint, easy retrofit and upgrade of old wastewater treatment plants.
