FRESNO-CLOVIS REGIONAL WASTEWATER RECLAMATION FACILITY
Operated by the City of Fresno, the Fresno/Clovis Regional Water Reclamation Facility (RWRF) provides wastewater treatment services for the greater Fresno metropolitan area in order to protect public health and the environment.
On an average day, the RWRF receives 68 million gallons of wastewater – enough to cover a football field to a height of more than 15 stories. Everyone living in Fresno, portions of Clovis, and some areas of Fresno County helps produce part of that wastewater.
The RWRF is located at Jensen and Cornelia in southwest Fresno. Wastewater generated from homes and businesses in the Fresno/Clovis metro area travels through 1,500 miles of sanitary sewer lines to the
Facility. Currently, the RWRF is a biological, secondary level treatment plant. Future capital improvement projects will upgrade this facility to be able to treat a portion of the incoming wastewater to a tertiary level.
Through the years, the RWRF has undergone substantial engineering improvements employing skilled professionals for the operation, maintenance, capital improvement, master planning, monitoring and reporting requirements as specified by strict Federal and State regulations.
