NOTICE - May and June 2023:

  • Work continues on the new area of the Nelson Wastewater Treatment Facility site, extending south to 49th Street. This area is being prepared for temporary construction trailers and requires fencing modifications and some tree removal. 

  • Following the project, the plan for the area is to restore it as green space with a landscaped berm.

Nelson Wastewater Treatment Facility Improvements Project

Nelson Complex Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) is Johnson County’s oldest treatment facility, and its service area is comprised of two main tributary basins - Turkey Creek (SMTC) and Mission Main (MTM1).


The service area, located in northeast Johnson County, is approximately bounded by 47th Street to the north, 95th Street to the south, Pflumm Road to the west, and State Line Road to the east. Metcalf Avenue roughly divides the two basins, with Turkey Creek to the west and Mission Main to the east.

The improvements project will upgrade the treatment facility in order to address aged and deteriorating infrastructure and to comply with new regulatory requirements.  

Information pertaining to the project, including schedules and activities, will be available on this site and updated as the project progresses.
