FUN FACTS:

Did you know MSD treats and recycles enough solids from the wastewater to fill approximately 15 – 10 foot round, 3 foot deep swimming pools? Did you know - If M&Ms were water and you had 10,000, the number of M&Ms equal to fresh surface water in the world is slightly less than ONE?!?! Jefferson County is about 390 square miles. A 1 inch rain is 6.8 billion gallons of water. Did you know that we have sewers that are big enough to drive a train through? We treat 182 Olympic swimming pools of wastewater every day at Morris Forman Water Quality Treatment Center. That’s 120 million gallons a day! Some of our combined sewers are over 100 years old. Like Science? MSD uses multiple sciences daily: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Meteorology, Geography, Geology, Agriculture. Our flood protection system holds back up to 52 feet of water. MSD collection system has 3200 miles of sewers, 282 pumping stations and 20 water quality treatment centers. Beargrass Creek Flood Pumping Station can pump 12.3 billion gallons in a single day… that’s the same amount of water that’s in Kentucky Lake. Our Morris Forman Water Quality Treatment Center is built on the site of a Civil War fort.
