Mayodan contracts the operations of the waste water treatment plant (WWTP) to Suez Environment/United Water. 

The plant is essentially a regional facility serving the needs of Mayodan and the towns of Madison and Stoneville under contract.

The WWTP is an extended aeration activated sludge treatment plant, processing a combination of industrial and domestic waste water. 

The treatment scheme includes influent bar screens, an influent lift station, three aeration basins and secondary clarifiers.  The treated water is chlorinated and de-chlorinated, prior to discharge to the Mayo River. 

Excess biological sludge is thickened in one of two gravity thickeners and subsequently digested in an aerobic digester.  The stabilized sludge is then land applied (on permitted sites) either as a liquid directly from the digester or it may be de-watered (prior to land application) on the sand drying beds and then land applied.

The plant can process 4.5 million gallons of sewerage per day. Mayodan Waste Water Treatment Plant 2013 Annual Performance Report
The Water Plant is able to produce over 3 million gallons of clean water for the citizens and industry of Mayodan. 

Currently, the plant produces approximately 500,000 gallons daily. 

The source for our water is the Mayo River.  Mayodan sells water to Stoneville and is interconnected with Madison.  This interconnection is important because Madison draws its' water from the Dan River, this helps to protect the two towns from drought or other emergency.

The Water Plant staff perform a variety of daily and monthly tests to insure that Mayodan's water meets the high standards of North Carolina and the federal government.

Annually, the Town produces a water quality report available at the link below and posted at the Town Hall.  You may download a copy below.

Sewer Division: The Sewer Division is responsible for maintaining all of the sewer lines (AKA Collection System) within Mayodan.  This includes all of the pump lift stations, manholes, and aerial lines.  The Division keeps the lines clean of grease and waste which allows the system to work effectively and efficiently.

Customers include residents, businesses, and industrial users.  Each customer is responsible for maintaining the lines within their building and on their private property until the sewage enters the public system.  Some businesses, such as restaurants, must have grease traps to remove extra grease and debris that can cause the lines to become clogged, leading to sewerage spills.  Many industrial users must provide pretreatment for their waste water, removing chemicals from the waste before it enters the public system.All of the sewerage lines eventually flow into the Mayodan Wastewater Treatment plant located on the eastern side of the Mayo River.

Fats, Oils & Grease

Have you ever had your wastewater drains plug up and back up into your home?

Disposing of fats, oils and grease down the kitchen sink can cause grease blockages. Over time grease builds up inside the pipes that connect your home to the sanitary sewer. This build up can cause a sanitary sewer over flow and can be detrimental to our environment.

Grease Blockage Prevention Steps

These problems can be eliminated with your help. You can reduce the chance of a grease related blockage by following these simple steps:

  • Do not pour cooking grease down the sink.

  • Use paper towels to wipe off plates and kitchen utensils.

  • Scrape all food scraps into garbage can and not into a garbage disposal.

  • Pour cooking grease into a container to solidify and dispose of container in trashcan.


Conserve Water

  • Garbage disposals use large amounts of water during operation. By eliminating the use of your garbage disposal, you can not only reduce the chances of a sewer line blockage, but also reduce your water and sewer bills.We all live in an Environmentally Sensitive Area and by using these steps we can help preserve our environment.
