Frankfort's first wastewater treatment plant was originally constructed in 1955-57 with grit removal, primary settling basins, a sludge thickener and two-stage anaerobic digestion with sludge drying beds. Chlorine was used for disinfection prior to discharge into the Kentucky River. In 1978-80, a new secondary activated sludge "oxidation ditch" type wastewater treatment plant was constructed and the disinfection process was changed to Ozone, which is more efficient and environmentally safe.
