Water Reclamation Department

The City’s Water Reclamation department reclaims locally used water, recovers nutrient resources contained in that water, and generates heat and electricity from the byproducts of the treatment process. Midland’s reclaimed water discharges into the Tittabawassee River, and eventually making its way to Lake Huron and into the source of Midland’s drinking water supply through Whitefish Point in Tawas.   

The City has been issued a permit to discharge clean, recycled water to the Tittabawassee River. The permit contains requirements for complying with State and Federal water pollution control laws. Water Reclamation Facility staff are responsible for complying with all permit requirements and to protect the environment to which we discharge water.
