Sustainable Options for Wastewater Treatment

Sustainable Options for Wastewater Treatment

Water reclamation is the process of renewing wastewater so that it can return safely to the natural environment.

The Holland Board of Public Works views this responsibility as part of a circular economy, where there is no waste. Our vision is that everything processed at the Water Reclamation Facility becomes beneficial. Nothing truly disappears from the environment, so we strive to take care of every piece of it.

ENVISION Gold Anaerobic Digester

Holland BPW is proud to announce that the anaerobic digester earned an ENVISION Gold rating for sustainability.


Making the Most of Our Wastewater Resources

Our Water Reclamation Facility sits on River Ave near the banks of Lake Macatawa. Because of its location, this wastewater treatment plant is limited in physical space for future expansion. To care for the resources we have and extend the life of our current wastewater infrastructure without requiring additional investments, we pay close attention to the capacity of our wastewater facility.

Water Reclamation Process

The Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) treats wastewater from the City of Holland and portions of the five adjacent townships (Holland Charter, Park, Fillmore, Laketown and Zeeland).
