The Wastewater Treatment Division is operated by Operations Management International, Inc. (OMI), a private contractor. This relieves the city of the burden of the waste treatment operation and makes available, if needed, experts in the many facets of wastewater treatment.
The City’s wastewater is pumped 12 miles south of town.
The wastewater is pumped through 3-15 inch lines and 1-20 inch line.
The water is treated through the use of a covered 3-anerobic cell, 3-aerobic cell and 4-holding ponds.
The treated wastewater is land applied to 2500-2800 acres of farm ground.
The plant has won numerous awards from KDHE & EPA
In 2000, our Dodge City, Kansas project won the Operations and Maintenance Excellence category for a large non-discharging facility.
