Waverly’s new waste water treatment facility was built in 2008. The new plant can process up to one million gallons per day or a population of around 10,000, when compared to the old facility which could only process three hundred thousand per day. The new plant was constructed on the same property.
The plant consists of several building and tanks that each serve a specific purpose. The end product of the plant is clean water which is sent to a creek next to the plant and eventually makes it’s way to Salt Creek. The solid waste from the plant becomes a black, dry material which is well suited for fertilizer on agricultural fields in the area.
The City of Waverly gets it’s water from eight underground wells; two of which are located in town. As for the other six, they are located just off N 134th St. and Alvo Road. The City of Waverly typically uses about four hundred thousand gallons per day. However, in the summer months, usage goes up to around 1.5 million gallons per day, with a large portion used by lawn sprinkler systems.
Water in Nebraska tends to have higher hardness levels, meaning it is high in minerals. In the Waverly area groundwater also has a lower pH, meaning the groundwater is naturally more acidic. This results in minute amounts of copper being removed from the pipes and added to the water. In order to keep the pipes from corroding and adding copper to the water, a chemical called an orthophosphate is added. This significantly lowers the amount of copper in the water, but as a result, the water has to be chlorinated slightly due to the potential for bacteria in the phosphate.
