Flow Equalization Pond.
Flows coming into the wastewater plant vary with the time of day and the number of people staying in town. We have more people staying in town during weekends and holidays so naturally we have figher flows during those period, but flows also vary with the time of day. When people get up they are taking showers and using toilets, so naturally we will see an increase in flows during the day as well as in the evening hours. At night, flows drop considerably. The Equalization Pond allows storage of the water until the Tertiary Treatment process can catch up.
This pond also provides a place for wildlife to coexist within the town. The pond attracts many water fowl that are local to our area as well as migrating through.
