West Point Treatment Center
Since the systems failure and subsequent flooding at the County's West Point Treatment Plant in February 2017, the Wastewater Treatment Division has taken decisive action to improve safety and redundancy in the plant; however, it could do more to mitigate persisting risks to safety and operations until permanent solutions are in place. Many key efforts remain to mitigate risks at West Point Treatment Plant (West Point) and they will take nearly a decade to fully implement. Further, the Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) is implementing its initial schedule for completing capital improvements to West Point and WTD needs to finish ongoing consultant evaluations that will inform solutions for the treatment plant.
