The Waste Water Department performs its service to the citizens of Fayette by collecting, transporting, recycling and treating waste water in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. We recycle the important asset of water through a process of several steps that cleanses it and restores the pure quality before it is returned to nature.


After screening and pumping all non-organic material, such as rags, paper, plastics and metal, is removed, the water is allowed to settle so other materials can removed after floating to the top or sinking to the bottom. Large amounts of air are then forced through the water causing a separation of other gasses and compounds. Another stage of setting occurs in which biological material settles to the bottom before filtration and disinfection processes restore the quality of the water to its natural state.
