    The protection of both human and ecosystem health in the Northwest Arkansas region is vitally important. We strive to maintain our great quality of life by providing wastewater treatment services, which involves the removal of contaminants from industrial wastewater and residential sewage, for the citizens of Harrison and surrounding communities.
