Lick Creek Treatment Station

Lick Creek Treatment Facility    The Lick Creek Treatment Station is the Town of Mosheim sewer treatment facility. The facility treats an average of approximately 600,000 gallons of wastewater per day. The biggest hindrance is folks who discard items that are not compatible with the equipment such as the supposed disposable Baby Wipes, while baby wipes claim to be sewer safe the are in fact Not compatible with the treatment plants. The wipes do not decompose and inevitably wind up clogging the pumps which them have to be taken off line, manually disassembled and cleaned and then be reinstalled into the system.
