Sheboygan Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility

        Laboratory


The wastewater laboratory uses modern analytical equipment to monitor the quality and character of the wastewater as required by the WDNR and U.S. EPA. One wastewater laboratory technician analyzes samples daily to monitor the influent and effluent quality. The wastewater laboratory also analyzes plant process samples for the plant operators, who then make process adjustments, as required, to improve process operations and enhance effluent quality. In addition, the wastewater laboratory analyzes raw wastewater samples collected by the member communities served by the Sheboygan Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility. The result of each community’s raw wastewater sample analysis is used when billing them for wastewater treatment provided by the City of Sheboygan.

The Activated Sludge process used at the plant is a biological process. The lab technicians monitor the condition of our hard working micro-organisms.
