A wastewater plant (also known as sewage works, sewage treatment plant, wastewater treatment plant, reclamation plant) is a facility used to treat wastewater. It includes physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove physical, chemical and biological contaminants. See sewage treatment.

How to map

Draw an area area around the grounds of the wastewater plant or place a node node at the centre of the grounds.

Add the tag man_made=wastewater_plant

This tag is often combined with landuse=industrial, which is both correct and may help simpler data consumers.

Useful combinations

The treatment reservoirs can be mapped with natural=water in combination with water=wastewater.

Tanks, particularly with walls or a roof, should instead use man_made=storage_tank with content=sewage (assuming that the wastewater is sewage; other types of wastewater, such as industrial waste, should use the more general content=wastewater). Other man_made=storage_tank combinations will likely apply as well in this case.
