Ascension Wastewater Treatment owns and operates approximately 230 lift-stations and sewer treatment plants, in developments throughout Ascension, Livingston, and East Baton Rouge Parishes.

The company was named the 2013 Private System of the Year for Outstanding Operations and Maintenance by the Louisiana Rural Water Association (LRWA), for their "dedication to helping to maintain a cleaner environment"....public health and environmental protection is the primary goal of the LRWA.
Ascension Wastewater Treatment is regulated by the Louisiana Public Service Commission, LDEQ and DHH.
