Harnessing valuable resources that would otherwise be lost.
A growing number of communities around the world grapple with environmental challenges of scarce natural resources, foul air, and polluted waterways. But thanks to decades of research, many have recognized value hiding in urban waste streams and are developing safe and effective products captured from the wastewater treatment process. Resource Recovery is a unit in the Wastewater Treatment Division that supports helping make this happen through the management of product and services.

King County's Wastewater Treatment Division (WTD) treats an average 175 million gallons of wastewater per day at three regional plants and two satellite plants. The Resource Recovery Section manages the administration and distribution of Loop biosolids, recycled water, and biogas.
