participation and employees-mayor-council teamwork."
The Anacortes Wastewater Treatment Plant, located on T Ave between 4th &
6th Streets, went online on February 17, 1992. Having previously used an
outdated overloaded primary treatment process, this new plant made it
possible for Anacortes to provide secondary treatment. Secondary
treatment is a biological process that treats suspended and dissolved
solids. The new process vastly improves the quality of the treated water
Anacortes discharges into the Puget Sound. The new treatment plant has
an average daily flow of 1.76 million gallons and is permitted for up to
4.5 million gallons per day.
