Abstract: The success of Carson City's new wastewater treatment plant is no surprise. It results from the City's Comprehensive Water Plan (CWP) for ultimate wastewater treatment/disposal. The decade of growth between 1969 and 1981 doubled Carson City, Nevada's population (to 35,000), straining water supply and wastewater treatment capability. Also, wastewater treatment could not meet stringent new water quality standards, including nitrogen and phosphorous limits, for its effluent that discharged to the Carson River.
