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).

30 Years in Fiber Optic Infrastructure

Holland BPW’s core function is to provide outstanding utility services and to operate infrastructure - that includes 30 years of experience with fiber optic broadband.

Why fiber makes a difference

Fiber-optic broadband is the highest quality infrastructure for broadband available. Constructed of tiny transparent fibers, information travels through the cable at the speed of light.

Moving Forward with Fiber

What is Fiber?

Most internet services currently operate on copper wire cable networks that transfer information using electrical signals. Fiber optic networks transfer information through strands of glass in a cable using the invisible light spectrum. Each cable has multiple strands, so like cars on a highway, fiber can support more traffic at higher speeds, allowing information to quickly move on and off the road.
