The Wastewater Division is responsible for the proper operation of the wastewater treatment plant and compliance with all State and EPA regulations. They also maintain the lift stations currently in use in the Town and for service areas adjacent to the Town of Berthoud but within unincorporated Larimer County.


The Town has one main treatment plant with four surrounding lift stations to serve the Town's wastewater needs.  The Wastewater plant was completed in 2004 with additional expansion of the solids handling facility. Following the Little Thompson Flooding in 2013 the Waste Water Treatment plant has received a significant upgrade using latest treatment technologies and equipment.  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.
