What We Do
Vision: We will produce a high quality wastewater effluent to protect our nation’s water resources both today and for future generations.
Mission: We will operate and maintain wastewater treatment facilities that are Safe, Compliant, & Cost Effective for our customers.
American Bottoms uses physical-chemical treatment processes and advanced biological treatment. This allows us to accept a variety of hauled wastewaters. We cannot accept hazardous waste, but we can take high or low pH wastewaters, oily wastewaters, metal-bearing wastewaters, and more.
American Bottoms Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility possesses a laboratory that is accredited by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) for environmental testing.
Like all major wastewater treatment plants, American Bottoms administers a pretreatment program which regulates industrial wastewaters discharged to the treatment plant.
