Wastewater Lab Operations
The Warsaw Wastewater Laboratory's primary task is to test the influent and effluent water and report the results to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM)
in order to demonstrate that the utility is removing pollution before discharging to public waters.
Additionally, tests are performed on treatment process controls for the plant while also testing for the Stormwater Program
. Tests are performed on all biosolids that are applied to farm fields in the area. The Tippecanoe River and Walnut Creek are also monitored above and below outfalls for pollutants.
The Warsaw Wastewater Laboratory has earned the Laboratory Excellence Award yearly since 2003 and has passed all Discharge Monitoring Report Quality Analysis
evaluations as required by the State of Indiana since 2004.
