The City of Mt. Shasta’s wastewater treatment system consists of headworks (Parshall flume, bar screen, comminutor and grit chamber), four oxidation and stabilization ponds, ballast lagoon dosing basin, dissolved air flotation system, intermittent backwash filter, chlorine contact chamber, declorination system and discharge line.
Treated wastewater can be discharged to any of three locations, depending on water quality and time of year: the Sacramento River, a leach field located adjacent to highway 89, or to the Mt. Shasta Resort Golf Course. Each year, millions of gallons of treated reclaimed wastewater effluent are pumped to the Golf Course where it is used for irrigation purposes.
