The City of Florence Water
Department serves approximately 14,000
residential and commercial customers in the City
households and industrial use is collected
through a series of pipes known as collectors.
These collectors convey the wastewater to larger
lines and then to the treatment plants.
A biological process
referred to as activated sludge treats
wastewater in the City of Florence. The waste is
converted to a more stable material via this
process and is then removed from the water and
disposed of safely as a soil conditioner. The
remaining water is disinfected with chlorine and
discharged into the Tennessee River.
