SC Convention Center hosts first annual wastewater pretreatment conference


Wastewater isn't something you worry much about after you flush the toilet, but it has the attention of dozens of people at the Sioux City Convention Center.

The first industrial wastewater pretreatment conference is underway. The event, which is put on by the city public works department, included 20 different vendor booths, which drew equipment manufacturers, chemical engineers, and regulatory agencies.

Organizers say the conference will be very beneficial for Siouxland businesses, because the new technology will bring better water into the treatment plant.

"Allows the city to have additional capacity for economic development. It also gives us an easier treatment at the treatment plant. We don't have to have the spikes and lows when the industries control their discharges and our operation staff can operate more efficiently," said Desiree McCaslen of the city of Sioux City.

Presentations were given throughout the day to give ideas for improving their wastewater quality.
