City Utilities Facilities
City Utilities operates a number of water-related facilities including the Three Rivers Water Filtration Plant, Water Pollution Control Plant, Hurshtown Reservoir, Camp Scott and others. Camp Scott is an important stormwater management facility. It is a large constructed wetland on the City's Southeast side designed to store and treat stormwater runoff. Stormwater from several neighborhoods around McMillen Park goes to a massive storage tank at the park and is then pumped to the wetland. The wetland also provides a natural habitat for song birds, waterflow, and other animals. Camp Scott is located at 3615 Oxford Street.There are often events scheduled at Camp Scott Wetlands. The City Utilities calendar and e-news are the best way to stay up to date on events.
