Town of Clayton Water Reclamation Program

The Town of Clayton continues to make progress on improving our wastewater infrastructure with the largest project in the Town's history. Construction is underway on multiple components, and the program is expected to be completed over the next three years. In general, construction will include surveying, vegetation removal, environmental controls, earthwork, concrete work, building the facility components, large equipment deliveries, electrical work, testing, commissioning, and final site restoration. Construction will occur in phases for each program component, so some activities may occur simultaneously or iteratively, depending on the location. HDR is assisting the Town as a project advisor.  For more information, please contact Town staff at
