The WPCF is designed to treat an average daily flow of 3.0 million gallons per day. Our collection system encompasses 90 miles of sanitary sewer drains throughout our village and a few cross connections between surrounding towns. Unlike other systems, our stormwater drains are not connected to the sewer system and should not be confused.
Treatment consists of a series of biological operational processes that produce a quality final effluent that discharges into the Ho-ho-kus Brook.
Anything other than human waste, toilet paper, and water can cause damage and clog an existing pipe.. Foods, medications, cleaners, plastics, and oils should NOT be flushed.
Think liquid, not solid.
