Wastewater treatment is a critical process to protect public health and the environment.
Middlesex Centre owns and operates two wastewater treatment plants, one in Ilderton and one in Komoka. These plants receive and treat wastewater 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Wastewater is a mixture of liquid and solid materials flushed down toilets, sinks and drains. It flows through the municipality's sanitary sewer system to the wastewater treatment plants. There, the wastewater is treated following strict regulations to meet or exceed the standards set by the provincial and federal governments.
Don't Flush It!
What your flush down the drain or toilet can damage your household plumbing, causing sewage back-ups and septic issues in your home. It also costs the municipality a considerable amount of time and money to clean clogged sewer lines throughout Middlesex Centre.
