What does the CCMUA do?

The County Regional Wastewater Treatment System collects and treats the sewage discharged every day from the properties in Camden County.  The Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority treats 58 million gallons of sewage per day at our main plant, Delaware No. 1 Water Pollution Control Facility.  This flow travels through 135 miles of pipe assisted by 27 pump stations located throughout the County.  At the plant, wastewater receives primary and secondary treatment through a biological process which removes 90-95% of the pollutants.  Sludge is currently dried, thereby reducing the quantity by about 75%, and then transported out of state for final disposal.
