The Middlefield Village Service Department is responsible for the operation of a state-of-the-art water and sewage treatment plant, built in 2008 and 2010 respectively. With an average daily flow around 600,000 gallons, the Waste Water Treatment Plant is designed to treat one million gallons per day with a peak flow up to two million per day. This pressure filter plant is designed to oxidize, filter and remove iron, manganese and the attached arsenic. Typically, our filtered water has no iron or manganese arsenic in the 2 parts per billion range, well below the new 10 parts per billion limit. Consequently, the Village of Middlefield provides safe, delicious water for our residents.

The Village of Middlefield’s Wastewater Treatment Facility originally consisted of two mixing lagoons, one settling lagoon and an Imhoff tank for treatment. The plant was recently upgraded and expanded to meet the needs of the growing Village and tougher EPA standards. The construction cost $10.8 million and increased capability of treating an average daily flow of 1.5 million gallons, with a peak flow of 3 million gallons.
The current plant is a state-of-the-art design that effectively treats residential, commercial and industrial customers. The current utilization of the plant is approximately 66%. The Middlefield Wastewater Treatment Plant includes three processing buildings, an operations building and covers 20 acres of land. The plant is run and maintained by two, licensed operators working one eight-hour shift, monitored 7 days a week. The plant processed approximately 212 million gallons of water in 2011. It also includes fire, intruder and equipment alarms that are monitored 24 hours a day.
