Metro Water Services goes above and beyond. We use the latest technology, including ultra violet light to disinfect water before it returns to the river. Our Whites Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant is a zero-chemical plant! We plan to use ultra violet light at all three of our wastewater plants in the future.

You can help prevent toilet clogs. Learn what not to flush!
