NEW Water’s “effluent,” or water we discharge into the Fox River, is generally cleaner than the receiving water. We collect and treat an average of 41 million gallons a day from our two facilities. NEW Water is proud to be permit compliant for 18 years in a row. This sample of our effluent is from September 5.

Summer was not quite over yet when this sample was taken of the Fox River on September 5! Cyanobacteria, or blue green algae, can still bloom this time of year, causing the water to look green, especially on calm days.
