Plant Tour

High Point Westside Wastewater Treatment Plant 1044 West Burton Road

Thomasville, North Carolina 27360


The High Point Westside Wastewater Treatment Plant is an advanced Class IV treatment facility owned and operated by the City of High Point, NC. The plant has recently undergone upgrades to the preliminary treatment facilities as well as the effluent filters, UV facilities, and solids handling facilities. These projects were Phase 1 and 2 of a three- phase improvement project. The plant then received a modified NPDES permit to expand from 6.2 MGD to 8.2 MGD followed by a capacity expansion to 10.0 MGD. Phase 3 included expanding existing facilities as well as the addition of new facilities to meet the new NPDES permit. Specifically, the expansion and improvements to the existing aeration tanks to provide for biological nutrient removal (BNR), a nitrified recycle (NRCY) pump station, new aeration blower facilities, upgrade of two existing primary clarifiers, upgrade of two existing secondary clarifiers, construction of an additional secondary clarifier, and chemical phosphorous removal storage and feed facilities.
