City of Sultan Wastewater Treatment Plant

The City of Sultan’s sewer system is a major infrastructure, most of which is invisible to the customers it serves. The sewer system requires qualified staff to operate and maintain an ongoing capital improvement program to replace old components to meet the requirements mandated by federal and state laws.

The sewer system is made up a Wastewater Treatment Plant located on the west side of the Sultan River, one sewage pump station located near the Sultan John statue in River Park, and approximately 16 miles of gravity and force main piping.

The vast majority of the sewage within the City of Sultan is generated on the east side of the Sultan River. The sewage is conveyed in pipes to a single sewage pump station. The sewage is then pumped across the Sultan River through an 8-inch force main that hangs beneath the US2 bridge over the Sultan River to a receiving manhole on the west side of the river.

Wastewater Treatment Plant 2014-Lab Accreditation Award
The Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE) has issued Sultan Wastewater Treatment Plant renewal of the lab’s 2014 Accreditation Certificate and Scope. 

The City of Sultan Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators, each year, complete split samples with an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved lab and report the test results to DOE. This maintains the lab certification so the plant operators can complete and report lab tests done in Sultan’s lab instead of contracting with an outside accredited lab saving the City on lab testing costs. 

The accreditation allows the Sultan WWTP to test for ammonia, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), dissolved oxygen, pH, total suspended solids and fecal coliform on the effluent of the WWTP before it enters the state waters of the US (Skykomish River). 

Recognize the importance and cost saving of the Accredited Lab Certification Renewal.
