Waste Water Treatment

Consistent History of State-of-the-Art Waste Water Treatment

The City of Ravenna built its first sewers and treatment plant in 1907, this original plant was later enlarged in 1910. In 1941 recommendations for a new plant were approved, this resulted in the construction of a new facility in 1942.

Over the years, increased use of the system, as well as increased standards for treatment facilities have dictated upgrades to the facilities. These subsequent updates took place in 1995, 1974, 1992 and finally in 2004.

Quick Facts

  • No EPA violations for the calendar year 2019
  • Currently working on the Phosphorus Reduction Project. This should be up and running by the end of 2019!
  • Ravenna’s Waste Water Treatment Plant rebuilt all 3 final clarifiers in the last 5 years.
  • The department added new roofs on New Admin Building, Old Admin Building, Draw Shack, Diamond Street Lift Station and Press Building in the last 5 years.
  • Fiscally responsible – the department kept the budget very similar to what it has been for the last 15 years (even with rising costs from outside vendors) due to technology upgrades and staff reduction (through attrition only).

Modern Facility for Residential and Commercial Customers

Today’s wastewater treatment facility is designed to treat an average flow of 2.8 million gallons per day, with a peak hydraulic capacity of 6.02 million gallons per day. The waste water arrives at the plant through three gravity lines that are fed by a number of other gravity lines and outlying pump stations.

Our modern facility allows us to meet and exceed regulations concerning water quality, consistently providing residential and commercial customers the highest standards governing wastewater treatment.
