At Veolia Water Milwaukee, our business is all about sustainability. The water reclamation services we perform on behalf of MMSD help complete - and sustain - the local water cycle: From Lake Michigan to your home, water then travels from your home through the water reclamation facility and back into Lake Michigan.
On an average day we treat upwards of 150 million gallons of wastewater, loaded with everything that water carries away from your home, such as pieces of scrambled egg, dirt, make-up and shampoo. These suspended solids, bacteria and other nutrients are all removed through the wastewater treatment process to meet strict environmental standards. In fact, ever since 2008 when MMSD contracted with Veolia Water, we have operated the District’s two water reclamation facilities in 100% compliance with the Clean Water Act.
