The City of Fruitland has operated two aerated lagoon treatment plants for over twenty years. One is approximately twelve acres in size and is located adjacent to the Snake River. The other is a five acre plant located adjacent to the Payette River. Both plants receive a combination of domestic sanitary and industrial waste water for secondary treatment.

Periodic operating permits are required from the Idaho DEQ and US EPA. Maximum limits on the pollutants that may be discharged into the Snake and Payette Rivers are set by the US EPA National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System.
