MSD: Treatment Plant Process (Incinerators)
1 month ago

You may have heard some rumors about the incinerators here at MSD, what we’re putting in them, and what’s coming out of the smokestacks. The truth is, nothing goes into our incinerators except the naturally occurring bacteria that breaks down what you flush down your toilet and put down your sink. It’s called sewage sludge, and it’s just a fraction of what’s leftover after we clean your wastewater to the point it can be released back into the Mississippi River.
