Wastewater Treatment

Wastewater Services

The Hot Springs has two wastewater treatment facilities that collect, treat, and transport wastewater for more than 23,000 customers. Hot Springs Utilities serves not only the citizens of Hot Springs, but also to large unincorporated areas of Garland County.

A network of approximately 600 miles of wastewater lines collects sewage from service areas in the city and county. Because of the nature of lake terrain, more than 120 pump stations and 4500 grinder pumps transport the sewage to the wastewater treatment plants where it is treated and then discharged into Lake Catherine.
