All of the water used by homes, industries and businesses must be treated before it is released back to the environment.
  3. Treated Wastewater
    It would be detrimental if we didn't treat the millions of gallons of wastewater produced every day before releasing it back to the environment. The wastewater is treated to high standards, disinfected and released to the St. Vrain Creek.
