The Black Water Sewage System (BSS) was built by the US government to manage the waste from sewage treatment plants in southern Louisiana.
It is now the largest black water treatment plant in the world.
It was originally designed to be an integrated sewer system, but when the US Congress passed legislation to expand the system, it became an integrated wastewater system.
The first wastewater treatment plant opened in the 1970s.
In 1988, the government gave BSS permission to build a second wastewater treatment facility.
It took three years to construct the second facility.
Now the US Department of the Interior has announced that it will be building a new wastewater treatment system in Louisiana.
“We are excited to begin the construction of a new facility for the Department of Interior in Lafayette, Louisiana,” Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said in a statement.
“This is the second of two projects to be built in the Gulf of Mexico.
Our Department of Agriculture is also pleased to be partnering with the Louisiana Department of Public Health and Hospitals to build an integrated treatment facility for our state.
We look forward to working with the local partners to build on the history of Louisiana’s wastewater system.”
A new facility is scheduled to open in 2019.
In addition to the wastewater treatment plants, the BSS is also the largest facility for treating sewage in the United States.
The new facility will have a capacity of over 16,000 barrels of sewage per day, and the water treatment system will operate 24/7.
According to the US Bureau of Reclamation, the wastewater system will provide drinking water for 1.2 million people in the state.
This is only the beginning for BSS.
“The BSS has been operating since 1985 and is the largest integrated wastewater treatment project in the country,” Jewell continued.
“As part of our mission to help ensure that our nation’s waterways remain safe and clean, we have committed to providing a high-quality, modern, and resilient treatment system that will provide for the long-term health and well-being of Louisiana citizens.”
