For more information or for citizen comments regarding the Water Reclamation Facility or the Sloan Channel, please contact us at:

The Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) is a state-of-the-art facility using submerged membrane bioreactor technology to produce extremely clear reclaimable water. When placed on line, the WRF was the largest plant of its kind in North America and one of the largest in the world. Advanced nutrient removal is used for the removal of phosphorous and nitrogen before discharging the highly treated wastewater to the Sloan Channel. For the phosphorus removal the WRF will use either enhanced biological phosphorus removal or chemical phosphorus precipitation. The A2/OTM process is used for nitrogen and phosphorus removal. The end result of this treatment process is a facility that discharges reclaimed water with parameters at or below the laboratory detection limits for most constituents of concern.

In January 2004, the City Council authorized an in-depth analysis on wastewater treatment options for the City. In October 2004, the City Council directed staff to pursue construction of a wastewater reclamation facility and authorized the City Manager to pursue a site for the facility. The proposed Wastewater Reclamation Facility and all associated infrastructure was estimated to cost approximately $321.3 million and was to be funded with bond proceeds and capital reserves.

Construction of this facility was substantially completed in August 2011. The Water Reclamation Facility is running with a currently average daily flow of 17 million gallons a day (MGD). This allows independence from the City of Las Vegas and Clark County Water Reclamation District wastewater treatment rates and provides the City with the ability to maximize efficiencies of operations and water resources.

The WRF is staffed with highly trained personnel who operate and maintain the facility 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through an extensive computerized operational system.
