Dallas Taylor and Charles Martin, from the LFUCG Division of Water Quality holding a map showing the route our sewage goes until it reaches the treatment plant. The Division of Water Quality provides citizens of Lexington-Fayette County with wastewater treatment and stormwater management services. The city’s sanitary sewer system includes 81 pump stations, over 1400 miles of sewer pipe, and two large wastewater treatment plants (Town Branch and West Hickman).
Effluent flows from pump station number two at the intersection of Bahama and Winchester Road all the way to the highest point of the subdivision in front of the club. At that point gravity takes over and effluent flows through several neighborhoods until it reaches the Town Branch Treatment Plant. The plant is off Old Frankfort Pike inside the circle.
