How WRA Works

WRA Board

The Wastewater Reclamation Authority (WRA) is governed by a board made up of representatives from each of the participating communities. The WRA Board meets monthly and has a number of committees.

WRA Conveyance System and Treatment Facility

The conveyance system connects each of the participating communities to the wastewater treatment facility. Take a look at the WRA Conveyance System (JPG) to see the conveyance system in action. The WRA wastewater treatment facility is an advanced secondary treatment plant located at 3000 Vandalia Road. It includes a number of treatment processes that remove the contaminants found in wastewater and produces an effluent that can be safely returned to the Des Moines River.  Access the WRA Treatment Facility (JPG) to learn more.
