About our Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs)

About our Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs)

Since our beginning in 1998, BCSS has grown to provide sewer service to approximately 15,500 customers. Our current permitted capacity to service 20,000 at our three wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) located in Malbis, Gulf Shores and Lillian. The wastewater from all of our customers travels to these WWTPs to be treated (cleaned), meeting strict environmental standards that are regulated by the Alabama Department of Enviornmental Management (ADEM), and returned the environment through groundwater. ADEM also regulates our biosolids process, and CDG Engineering working with BCSS in this practice. BCSS has three primary wastewater treatment operators, with two certified operators. Please visit Safety for details on we maintain our sanitary sewer system and to read about our protocol for handling a sanitary sewer overflow (SSO).

BCCS welcomes community members for tours of our WWTP by appointment. We can also host field trips for local schools. Please contact Jenny Williams to schedule a tour.
