Operating under very strict Federal and State permits, this facility turns over 80% of Yuma's wastewater into high quality treated effluent which is discharged into the Colorado River. The smallest facility, Jackrabbit Mesa, and the newest facility, Desert Dunes, treat the remaining 20% of Yuma's wastewater.
