Rupert Wastewater Department
The Wastewater department is no
stranger to recycling, the waste process turns incoming wastewater to
nutrient rich irrigating for farmers and residents that have access to
low pressure irrigation.
The City of Rupert Wastewater Department infrastructure consists of
approximately 44 miles of collection lines. With sizes varying from 8"
Rupert also has 18 lift stations that it maintains.
Rupert treats it wastewater by extended aeration and then the
wastewater is sent to facultative lagoons. Rupert's lagoons are
approximately 232 acres.
Once the water has gone through the biological process it is land
applied by 3 center pivots.
The land under the pivots is farmed with various crops such as
