Town Branch Wastewater Treatment Plant improvements

Located inside New Circle Road just off of Old Frankfort Pike, the plant along Town Branch Creek can treat up to 11 billion gallons of wastewater annually.

The plant, which opened in 1919, was one of the first sewage treatment plants in this part of the United States. The facility has been upgraded and expanded several times through the years. Additional upgrades are planned through 2026 as a part of Lexington’s Consent Decree compliance measures.
