What We Do?
Constructed in late 1973, the Vicksburg Water Pollution Control Center is a 10 million gallon per day trickling filter facility. The facility operates 24 hours per day, seven days per week and treats all of the wastewater generated by homes and various industries inside the City of Vicksburg. The facility employs a staff of eight people. The process includes screening of large debris, grit removal, sedimentation and sludge removal, a biological organic removal process, final sedimentation and disinfection of the wastewater before it is discharged to the Mississippi River.
Treatment Type, Permits, and Awards
The trickling filter process is the least expensive of the secondary treatment processes thereby providing a very cost effective method of treating the wastewater generated in Vicksburg. The facility has been sited for excellence in the past and has been named the "Outstanding Wastewater Treatment Facility in Mississippi" for the years 1995 and 2006, and was given the George W. Burke Facility Safety Award for its risk management planning and safety record.
