Wastewater services are important because they protect water quality, safeguard public health and support future development in the community. Springfield's wastewater services are also important to the environmental and economic health of the state of Missouri because of the significant water-related recreation and tourism in the Springfield area. 

What We Do

The Clean Water Services Division maintains the Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) which serves an area of 145 square miles that includes the City of Springfield, surrounding Greene County, and the communities of Willard, Battlefield, and Strafford.

The POTW consists of the wastewater collection system and two treatment plants. On average, over 39,000,000 gallons of wastewater are collected and treated every day. Quality improvement and pollution prevention programs ensure the protection of community and environmental health while increasing efficiency and innovation.
