WTP layout plan by the the City of Loveland
- Increased regulatory requirements - In accordance with new State permit limits, the plant effluent to the river must meet very low limits for phosphorus and nitrogen by 2020.
- Increase capacity to meet population growth - When all work is complete, the WWTP will be re-rated from 10 million gallons per day (MGD) to 12 MGD allowing for an additional 10 to 15 years of growth for Loveland residents.
- Replace aging infrastructure - Including renovation of the existing secondary clarifiers, improvements to the existing anaerobic digesters, and replacement of the headworks screening equipment.
