Northwest Arkansas Conservation Authority (NACA)

The cities of Rogers and Springdale created the Northwest Arkansas Conservation Authority (NACA) pursuant to Arkansas Code Annotated 14-233-101, et seq, the “Joint County and Municipal Solid Waste Disposal Act” to address the treatment and disposal of bio-solids in Washington and Benton counties.  Since its creation in 2002, eight additional municipalities joined the Authority whose mission expanded to include not only bio-solids, but also wastewater treatment, community education, and watershed monitoring and protection.  It current membership roster includes the cities of:

  • Bentonville
  • Bethel Heights
  • Cave Springs
  • Centerton
  • Elm Springs
  • Highfill
  • Lowell
  • Springdale
  • Rogers
  • Tontitown

Each member city is represented on the Authority’s board of directors.

NACA’s program includes an initial six million gallon per day wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) on a 470 acre regional treatment site and a biosolids treatment facility (BSTP) that not only handles the output of the NACA wastewater treatment plant, but also provides cost-effective biosolids management for the other water treatment facilities in northwest Arkansas.   This facility is planned to begin operation in 2008.
