This department's operations during the COVID-19 State of Emergency:
The Wastewater Treatment Plant is closed to the general public until further notice.
COVID-19 is present in wastewater, however it is not yet known if the virus is still active at that point. It is known that COVID-19 is extremely susceptible to disinfection.
At the Bath Wastewater plant we use sodium hypochlorite on all our flows for disinfection. We perform laboratory tests to make sure we destroy any fecal coliforms through our disinfection. Fecal coliform is more difficult to destroy via disinfection than COVID-19 and by making sure we destroy those coliforms, you can rest assured that any COVID-19 present was also destroyed before going back into the environment.
