After over 2 years of planning and research The City of Woodburn approved a $7.6M upgrade to our aging wastewater treatment facility.  This facility has the capacity to handle enormous growth in Industrial, retail and residential users for decades to come.  With future plans to enhance the facility with solar power, we are committed to  ensuring that Woodburn is set up to prosper for many years to come.

Our new Class 11 0.400 MGD oxidation ditch treatment facility was activated on July 14, 2019.  The new facility consists of an influent pump station, an influent flow meter, mechanical fine screen, equalization basin, a two-channel oxidation ditch, two secondary clarifiers, a cascade aerator, chemical phosphorus removal, a chlorination/dichlorination system, effluent pump station, and an effluent flow meter.

The collection system is 100% separated sanitary sewer by design with one overflow point into the Marsh Ditch.

Sump pumps: Illegally connected sump pumps is one of the biggest contributors to high volume influent water entering the sewer treatment facility. If your sump pump is connected to the sanitary sewer line, you are asked to disconnect it from the sanitary line and either discharge it to the ground or connect it to a storm line. If you do not know whether or not you are connected to the sanitary or the storm line, please contact our Superintendent, Ryan Walls, at 260-450-2410 to schedule an inspection. Note: the City has no interest in harassing residents, we only wish to make sure that these activities cease as much as possible going forward as they cause additional cost for all users.
