Primary/Secondary Wastewater Treatment
Monterey One Water’s Regional Treatment Plant treats an average of 17 million gallons of municipal wastewater per day. When needed to meet water recycling demands, Monterey One Water can also collect additional used waters for treatment including industrial processing water, crop irrigation drainage water, and urban stormwater runoff.

No matter its origin, all wastewater enters the Regional Treatment Plant for primary and secondary wastewater treatment. Here, the following processes are used to remove solids, pollutants, and harmful bacteria:
- Primary Clarifiers
- Trickling Filters
- Bioflocculation Basins
- Secondary Clarifiers
