Fresno is home to the seventh largest wastewater reclamation facility in California, the Fresno-Clovis Regional Wastewater Reclamation Facility (RWRF). We also host the North Fresno Wastewater Reclamation Facility (NFWRF) along with over 1,500 miles of sewer pipes and other sanitary collection system infrastructure like manholes and lift stations.
Clean water is critical for sustaining life and health of any community. Once wastewater disappears down sinks, toilets, floor drains, or other outlets, it doesn’t just disappear. It flows through a network of underground sewer pipes making its way to wastewater treatment facilities where it is cleaned and safely reused and/or released back to the environment.
