Water Filtration Plant
The Water Filtration Plant (WFP) is located at 1200 Pine Grove Avenue within Pine Grove Park. The WFP is a surface water plant which obtains its water from the St. Clair River, approximately 1/2 mile south of the Blue Water Bridge. This WFP provides clean, safe, potable water to the City of Port Huron, Port Huron Charter Township, Fort Gratiot Charter Township, Kimball Township, and Clyde Township.
The plant operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The processes at the WFP consist of chlorination, flocculation, sedimentation and filtration. Filtered water is stored in a 3.75 million gallon reservoir at the WFP. There are two elevated storage tanks within the City limits. One has the capacity of one million gallons and the other has a storage capacity of 0.5 million gallons. There is also a 1.5 million gallon ground storage tank that is placed in service during the spring and summer months. There are three additional elevated storage tanks (not owned by the City) which are located in the townships that the City serves. All of these tanks help maintain sufficient reserves for peak day and peak hour flows and fire protection to these communities
The WFP also maintains an on-site laboratory able to provide bacteriological tests on distribution and in-plant sample points

Wastewater Treatment Plant
The Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is located at 100 Merchant Street. The WWTP is a regional facility serving industrial, commercial and residential customers in the City of Port Huron, Port Huron Charter Township, Fort Gratiot Charter Township, and Kimball Township.
The WWTP is staffed and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. wastewater is treated through a series of processes, including primary treatment, secondary treatment, and solids handling. The treatment of the wastewater results in the removal of approximately 2,000 tons of residuals each year, in the form of biosolids. These biosolids are removed from the wastewater prior to discharging the treated wastewater to the St. Clair River. The biosolids formed during the removal process are recycled to area farms for use as fertilizer and soil conditioner.
Special services offered through the WWTP include implementation and enforcement of an Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP). This program ensures that industrial and commercial customers meet local and federal standards on sewage discharges. This protects the wastewater plant's ability to function and the quality of biosolids produced. Plant staff also provide the inspection and enforcement of the State Cross Connection Program for the protection of potable water supplies.
