Please send your comments using the “Email Us” link on the website (http://www.livingstonwrf.com/).

The Wastewater Treatment Plant is located just East of the Building & Utility office. It treats approximately 800,000 gallons of sewage per day with the capability to treat 2.0 million gallons per day.
Solvents, petroleum based oils and greases are not handled by the WWTP.  These substances can eventually make their way to the Yellowstone River, which is a violation of our discharge permit. The State of Montana and the Environmental Protection Agency have very strict guidelines on what enters the Yellowstone River. So in short, to keep our plant running properly if you want to dispose of something you're just not sure of, please call us first. Thank you!

The City of Livingston Waste Water Treatment Plant has just completed the first phase of a three phase upgrade.  This 1.4 million dollar rehab is in its completion stage consisting of a new headworks building which eliminates rags and grit entering the treatment system.

A new ultraviolet disinfection system was also installed to eliminate disease causing coliforms. The ultraviolet system replaces chlorine for disinfection.

As always only flush material that are   bio-degradable and biological friendly.  Oils, solvents, greases, anti-freeze, etc…are NOT acceptable substances in the sewer lines and will NOT process at the sewer plant.  Ask the Livingston Utility Department, 222-5567, where to dispose of these products.  PLEASE NEVER FLUSH DIAPERS OR ANY KIND OF CLEANING WIPES.  Thank you for keeping our environment safe and clean.
