Wastewater

Brett Petersen pours powder polymer into the hopper as he does a plant check at the Gillette wastewater treatment facility in 2018. Now with the coronavirus pandemic continuing in Wyoming and Campbell County, the Wyoming Department of Health is asking local wastewater plants to test for COVID-19 in their communities.

The city of Gillette is considering whether to test its wastewater for COVID-19.

The Wyoming Department of Health has reached out to the city about it, but there are several factors city officials are examining before pitching the idea for the Gillette City Council to consider, said Utilities Director Michael Cole.
