The Water Pollution Control Plant is responsible for receiving and treating waste water to protect the environment. The plant operators perform approximately 6 different tests on the water each day to ensure the effectiveness of their processes. The plant has been in operation for approximately 85 years, running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In many ways, the water sent back to the local river, from the plant, is cleaner than the water already there. Please don’t hesitate to contact the Plant Supervisor regarding any issues with waste water.

A sewer lateral connects a house or business to the public sanitary main. Per City of Farrell Municipal Code, it is the property owner’s responsibility to maintain and repair the sewer lateral from the house or business to the point of connection with the public sanitary main. Laterals include portions on private property and public property, including sidewalks and streets.
Call the Public works department at (724) 983-2703 ext. 105. They will come out and determine whether the problem is with the public sewer line or the lateral running form the main line to your house/business. If a problem is found with the main line it will be fixed as soon as possible. Should the problem be with the lateral running to your house, you will be responsible for making the repairs.
The daily operation of the treatment plant is the work of highly skilled people including a plant manager, laboratory personnel, plant operators and maintenance personnel.
Treatment plants protect public health from disease-causing bacteria and viruses. They do this by disinfecting wastewater to eliminate harmful organisms to protect the quality of water that goes into our streams, rivers, lakes and oceans.
