The Bozeman Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) is an EPA award-winning facility. We are proud of the work we do to protect our local environment.
The Bozeman Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) currently has a capacity of 8.5 million gallons per day (MGD) with provisions to expand the facility to ultimately accommodate wastewater flows of over 13 MGD.
The Bozeman WRF uses a treatment technology called Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) to treat the City's domestic, commercial and industrial wastewater. This process utilizes living microorganisms to biologically decompose, purify and remove biological nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) from the wastewater it receives from our community. BNR is a very efficient process that results in the removal of over 98% of conventional pollutants. The City's new and expanded BNR facility will enhance treatment and ensure even greater protection of our receiving stream, the East Gallatin River.
