Aug 26, 2022
The Blue River Wastewater Treatment Plant, located near I-435 and Front Street, is transforming into one of the most critical water infrastructure projects in the Kansas City area, the Blue River Biosolids Facility.
“This is the biggest wastewater plant in the City of Kansas City,” said Brent Herring, Wastewater Operations Officer at KC Water. “We have 66 facilities, and all solids in the wastewater system come here to be treated.”
On an average day, the facility treats close to 75 million gallons of wastewater.When completed, the facility will be the first plant of its kind in the Midwest to recycle human and domestic waste into useful energy sources.
