Queen Acres Water Reclamation Facility

The Queen Acres Water Reclamation Facility is located on Ross-Hanover Road and discharges clean water to Indian Creek.

The plant treats wastewater from approximately 850 homes near the town of Millville with an average daily flow of 0.329 million gallons per day. Queen Acres has influent screening, grit removal, twin oxidation ditches, three clarifiers, a tertiary filter and ultraviolet light disinfection.

Queen Acres was built in 1955. At that time, the plant consisted of a primary settling tank, a digester and sludge drying beds. The primary settling tank effluent went to a trickling filter then to a final settling tank. The design flow was approximately 0.1 million gallons per day.

In the late 1980s, a new plant was built to replace the old plant. In 2003, the plant was upgraded to its current configuration.

Three state-licensed wastewater operators are responsible for the day-to-day operation of the plant.
