The latest composition of the drinking water in the City of Wayne (as of February, 2022).
Drinking Water Analysis
|Nitrate as Nitrogen||3.8 PPM|
|Conductivity||0.688 mmhos cm|
|Total Dissolved Solids||447 PPM|
At the Wayne Wastewater Treatment Plant, we test for BOD (Bio-Chemical Oxygen Demand), Total Suspended Solids, Nitrates as Ammonia, pH, and Dissolved Oxygen. A certified lab, Environmental Analysis South located in Jackson, Missouri tests the wastewater for Copper, Arsenic, Chromium, Nickel, Cadmium, Lead, and Zinc. Tests are also taken to measure the survivability of minnows (Pimephales) and fleas (Ceriodaphnia) which will imitate the survival of wildlife in our effluent in Logan Creek.
