WASTEWATER POLLUTION CONTROL FACILITY
The Wastewater Treatment Plant Facility at 3629 S. Walters Road performs complex processing of wastewater in order to keep our environment safe and pollution free. It processes wastewater from the Town of Beloit and portions of the Town of Rock to produce clean water which is discharged into the Rock River.
The facility employs 3 people. Its staff is skilled in chemistry, biology, mechanics, maintenance, electronics, supervision and management. Town of Beloit Wastewater Treatment Plant operators are certified by the State of Wisconsin in wastewater treatment to ensure adequate training to perform the necessary tasks at the treatment facility.
To be the responsible custodian of wastewater collection for all current and future customers, consistent with local and state regulations, as well as industry practices and standards.

Treatment Plant History
The Town of Beloit first built a wastewater treatment plant in 1969. The plant capacity was 350,000 gallons of waste per day. In 1979 a 650,000 gallon per day plant was added making the total capacity of our facility 1,000,000 gallons per day. In 2003 a 750,000 gallon sludge storage tank was added. Radio telemetry alarm system and new pretreatment equipment was also added in 2003. The latest endeavor has prepared the Town of Beloit for the future with greater efficiencies than ever before while continuing to effectively provide the best wastewater treatment services possible.
The laboratory facilities at the treatment plant are certified by the Department of Natural Resources to provide full support for wastewater treatment processes. The staff conducts several daily tests on various stages of wastewater treatment.
In addition, the laboratory monitors compliance parameters for water quality standards and the discharge permit limits set by the Department of Natural Resources to assure adequate treatment of wastewater prior to discharge into the Rock River.
BioSolids Management Program
Biosolids (sludge) are the stabilized and thickened organic products of the facility’s treatment process. While many people believe biosolids are waste, they are actually a valuable resource. Like animal manure, biosolids are part of the natural cycle of life. They contain nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium. Utilization of biosolids provides a natural, organic alternative to petroleum-based chemical fertilizers and eliminates the need to dispose of these materials at local landfills.
We apply over 80 tons of biosolids each year to farm fields. Biosolids can improve soil structure because of the high organic content. Organic matter is the ingredient that gives life to the soil and is the storehouse of food for crops.
The Biosolids Management Program at the Town of Beloit ensures the safe agricultural re-use of the biosolids product. Land application rates are computed based on crop needs. The application rates fully comply with regulations set forth by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
