Wastewater Treatment Plant


The City of Lincoln owns and operates a state-of-the-art waste water treatment facility. The city built its first wastewater treatment system in the 1980ís, and with the arrival of Honda a new modern wastewater system that treats over a million gallons of wastewater daily.

The wastewater treatment plant is a modern plant. The system utilizes ultraviolet light for disinfection which provides protection of the environment.  As technology improves the facility will search for ways to reuse the bi-products such as, bio-solids, grease, used oil, and other resources to improve the process and decrease energy costs. The reuse of bio-solids is potentially the best option to be the quickest cost savings. Recycling of wastewater bi-products is in its infancy and not cost effective at this time but the future looks very bright.

The plant complies with all ADEM regulations and publishes an annual Municipal Water Pollution Prevention report (MWPP). The plant is operated by Shane Vinson, Plant Manager with a staff of 3 operators.
