The R.M. Clayton Water Reclamation Center is a wastewater treatment facility that serves most of Atlanta and portions of two counties.

The R.M. Clayton Water Reclamation Center Expansion project not only provided increased plant capacity, odor control measures, and updates for phosphorus removal, but also featured a new headworks facility, ultra-violet (UV) light disinfection, new office and laboratory space, renovation to existing buildings, and extensive landscaping. Included in the phosphorus removal facilities are ten 150-foot diameter secondary clarifiers, an effluent filter, and a 330-mgd pump station. At its completion in 2000, the UV facility was one of the largest in the United States.

Throughout the project, the existing water reclamation center remained operational. The team completed a minimum of six secondary clarifiers and necessary tie-ins and ancillary equipment within 16 months to make way for demolition of existing facilities.
