The City’s first wastewater treatment plant, portions of which still serve the City as the Doty Street Pumping Station, was placed in service in 1913 about 1,500 feet from the current site.  The most recent update was in 2008 which makes it the fifth major project completed on the current site, including projects in 1928, 1949, 1964, 1975, and 2008.  Many elements of the 1949, 1964, and 1975 facilities were adaptively reused for the 2008 plant upgrade to provide added features at little or no cost.  These adaptive reuses save the ratepayer millions of potential additional costs.
