Wastewater and Sewer Plant

The Jamestown Wastewater Treatment Plant is a Sequencing Batch Reactor capable of treating up to 1.5 million gallons/day. The raw sewage from the collection system enters the plant at the Headworks where all the trash and grit is removed. It then continues by gravity into one of two SBR Tanks where it undergoes a biological treatment process to remove CBOD, TSS, Ammonia, Nitrates-Nitrites, and phosphorus. After the biological process the clear effluent then passes through the Chlorine Contact Chamber for disinfection with Chlorine Gas and De-Chlorination with Sulfur Dioxide. After Chlorination/De-Chlorination the clean effluent is then discharged into Rock Castle Creek. The effluent is tested daily in our lab to insure we are meeting the limits of our NPDES permit issued to us by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Division of Water Pollution Control. The plant has recently undergone a $2,500,000 upgrade to make sure we have the most up-to-date process controls and equipment. With this upgrade, the Jamestown Wastewater Treatment Plant can continue to produce effluent that is among the cleanest in the state.
