SD1’s Western Regional Water Reclamation Facility became operational in early 2012. Located in western Boone County, the facility will improve sewer function across the region by relieving demand on the Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, which serves all three Northern Kentucky counties. Western Regional has the capacity to treat up to 20 million gallons a day (mgd) of wastewater, making it SD1's second largest treatment plant. Western also utilizes state-of-the-art technology that allows it to function with a dedicated staff, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Western Regional Conveyance Tunnel
The Western Regional Conveyance Tunnel is the largest capital project in SD1's history. It is also one of the most ambitious and impressive feats of engineering, construction and ingenuity in Northern Kentucky history.
Serving most of Boone County and portions of Kenton County, the six mile long conveyance tunnel carries sewage to the new treatment facility, alleviating stress on the sewer systems throughout Northern Kentucky. Flow is conducted through the 8.5 foot diameter conveyance tunnel by gravity.
