The City of Wellington takes a proactive approach to reinvest in our utility system to ensure high quality and reliable services for our customers. This is accomplished through investments in infrastructure, investments in new equipment, and routine/preventative maintenance. In July 2010 the city's new wastewater treatment facility became operational, providing ample capacity for growth and development. The project also constructed new wastewater mains to support growth. Currently, the City of Wellington is investing $4.2 million into the development of a secondary power source to provide redundancy and greater reliability into the system. The City of Wellington purchases electricity from the Kansas Power Pool (KPP), which is delivered to the community via Westar Energy transmission lines. During times when demand exceeds the available supply from KPP, the City of Wellington Electric Production Department has the capability to generate additional electricity via a natural gas-powered generator. The ability to generate is a tremendous advantage to the community.
