Division of Wastewater Treatment
Responsible for treating all waste streams conveyed to it and disposal of all subsequent stabilized byproducts. Through the use of state-of-the art processes and trained personnel, the facility is capable of not only meeting but also exceeding the discharge parameters mandated by its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) permit. This insures that Lakewood helps preserve one of our nation's greatest natural resources, Lake Erie.
The Lakewood Waste Water Treatment Plant offers educational tours to schools, groups and individuals. For more information please call 216-529-5690 weekdays from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm.
There are several improvement projects currently underway at the treatment plant. We have received federal economic stimulus funding to partially offset the costs of three of these improvement projects. The federal stimulus funding is being used for replacing both of the secondary digester covers, replacing the drive units on the two thickener tanks and to replace both of our digester sludge circulating pumps.
