Wastewater Permitting & Facility Improvement Project

The City of Whitefish has hired a consulting team utilizing Anderson-Montgomery Consulting Engineers of Helena, in association with Robert Peccia & Associates of Kalispell, to assess the City's wastewater treatment plant and collection system.  The age and condition of the wastewater facilities in the City, as well as new regulatory treatment standards, provides the impetus for the technical assessment.  The City has over 58 miles of sewage main and 17 lift stations required to serve the homes and businesses found on the varied topography throughout the community.  The treatment system utilizes a lagoon-based technology that has been modified and upgraded several times over the last 40 years including the inclusion of a mechanical process to remove the nutrient phosphorous.  Both the wastewater collection facilities and the treatment plant will require improvements to make the system effective and capable of complying with new anticipated treatment standards.
