Welcome to Douglas County Sewer District No. 1
Our goal is to provide our community with reliable wastewater collection and transmission services. We are committed to operate and maintain our facilities economically and safely while protecting the public health and the environment.
Beginning on Tuesday, June 15th, the Douglas County Sewer District in East Wenatchee will be taking 3 Storage Nitrification/Denitrification Reactor Towers (SNDRs) out of service for cleaning and inspection. While the SNDRs are out of service, Crews will also install a new pump for each tower.
SNDR Towers built in 1998
SNDR Pump Room
New pumps weigh 1,100 lbs. each
The treatment process will be modified during the servicing of the Reactors and, as a result, there may be periods of unusual odor until the SNDRs are fully operational. It is anticipated that the treatment process will return to normal operation by July 11, 2021.
