Analysis of Performance
The Mulberry Water Reclamation Facility failed Whole Effluent Toxicity Testing (WET) for QTR 2 2021. CDPHE has been notified and follow up action is taking place.
The MWRF facility is undergoing accelerated WET testing in coordination with CDPHE. The facility must complete the testing for up to 5 weeks. Testing will cease if we pass 2 consecutive weeks or pass 3 of 5 weeks. Conversely, if we fail 2 consecutive tests or 3 of the five tests than we will move into a second phase called Toxicity Identification Evaluation testing with CDPHE.
Why Is This Important?
City Organization Impact on Performance
High – The City has direct operational control of the wastewater treatment facilities, however the quality of the wastewater flowing into the facilities impacts the City's ability to meet regulatory requirements.
