Wastewater Management

The Wastewater Division is responsible for the proper operation of the wastewater treatment plant and compliance with State and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. The division maintains four surrounding lift stations to serve the Town of Berthoud and service areas adjacent to the Town but within unincorporated Larimer County.

The wastewater treatment process insures the public trust by protecting the health, welfare and safety of our community and our precious natural water environment. The treatment plant can treat up to 3 million gallons per day using a conventional activated sludge treatment process with aerobic sludge digestion. The bio-solids from the facility are land applied for beneficial use.

Department responsibilities include:

  • Maintain all Town owned sewer mains
  • Jet clean sewer mains
  • Video tape sewer mains
  • Rehabilitate manholes
  • Repair and/or replace sewer mains
  • Sewer main locates
  • Sewer line inspections
