At the Water Pollution Control Plant, our main goal is to protect public health and the environment. We’ve done amazing things with the master plan upgrades that were developed in 2001 and completed in 2011.
The plant upgrades have provided for aggressive removal of nutrients and greatly reduced the potential for negative environmental impacts to the Chesapeake Bay. With the previous upgrades focusing on liquid treatment, we are now initiating a master plan process for the solids generated during the water reclamation process.
Main Goals of Master Plan
The Solids Master Plan will provide for the modernization of plant facilities (solids treatment) while creating opportunities for sustainability and resource recovery.
The main drivers of the plan are to:
- Replace aging infrastructure–identify immediate and long-term needs.
- Weigh the possibility of regulatory changes with other criteria to determine treatment options.
- Make better use of valuable resources.
- Perform cost and risk analyses.
- Select long-term solids treatment solution and prepare capital funding program.
