Use the tag man_made=wastewater_plant. For more detail see Tag:man_made=wastewater_plant. However it is not currently rendered by Mapnic or Cycle Map, but can be seen if you use the Osmarender view.

I draw a polygon of the site and use the industrial tag and label it sewage works which renders ok. see http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=52.32332&lon=-0.14847&zoom=17&layers=M

You should use the correct tag mentioned by srbrook and you shouldn't abuse the name tag but instead enter the official name of the sewage works or leave it blank.

I think that landuse=industrial is OK, but it is quite generic and man_made=wastewater_plant should be added as well to specifically tag this kind of facility.
