The City of American Canyon owns and operates the American Canyon Water Reclamation Facility (WRF), commissioned in 2001, which treats domestic and industrial wastewater flows. The WRF is one of the first Membrane Bio Reactor (MBR) and ultraviolet light (UV) disinfection treatment plants in the country. The City’s state-of-the-art WRF treats a minimum of 1 million gallons of wastewater each and every day; the annual total wastewater treated is in excess of 650 million gallons. The WRF also produces approximately 80 million gallons of recycled water each year, used for irrigation, and in some instances toilet flushing in dual-plumbed locations.
The Sewer Collection Division is located at the Corporation Yard at 205 Wetlands Edge Road in American Canyon.
The Sewer Collection crew maintains 34 miles of sanitary sewer mains that connect residents and businesses to the Water Reclamation Facility. They respond to reports of sewer spills and back-ups and monitor compliance with environmental compliance and water quality regulations.
FREE RECYCLED WATER FOR YOU!
Our new Residential Recycled Water Fill Station is now open for City of American Canyon residents. Located at the City’s Corporation Yard, 205 Wetlands Edge Road; the station is open on a drop in basis from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM, Monday - Friday. Recycled water can be used to hand water your lawn, gardens, vegetables and trees – it cannot be used to drink, play, bathe, cook, wash your car or fill your RV’s holding tanks. You will need to bring your own container with a tight fitting lid. After a brief training, you will be allowed to pick up between 1 and 300 gallons of water, but be careful water is VERY heavy! Ten gallons of water weighs 80 pounds and a 55 gallon drum of water weighs 900 pounds!
