The collection system includes sanitary sewer lines within the City, as well as gravity mains, hundreds of manholes, four Lift Stations, and sewer force mains. The Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF), located at 15385 SW 160th St., operates as an activated Sludge Treatment Plant with UV disinfection. The design of the facility allows for up to 1 million gallons of flow per day. Effluent (out-going) flow from the WWTF consistently meets or exceeds all Kansas Dept. of Health & Environment Protection agency requirements. The resource management facility is located at 15385 SW 160th Street Rose Hill, KS 67133.
