The treatment plant accepts high-strength liquid waste from industries outside of Burlington's sewage district. Permits for these wastes are issued by plant staff in accordance with guidelines published by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Fees paid by industries using this service allow the plant to generate revenue, which reduces rates for sewer customers. This station also serves rural residents by accepting wastes from holding tanks and septic tanks. Citizens with motor homes and camping trailers may use the City's septage receiving station to empty their mobile holding tanks at no charge.
