DC Water and Sewer Authority To Break Ground on Environmental Projects

April 29, 2011
Company invites people to attend the ceremony in May

Please join the DC Water and Sewer Authority as they break ground on two projects with significant environmental impacts on the region.

First, the thermal-hydrolysis and anaerobic-digesters project will allow solids left over after wastewater treatment to be pressure-cooked, which will produce combined heat and power—and generate enough electricity to fuel one-third of the plant’s needs.

Second, the Enhanced Nutrient Removal Facilities will reduce the amount of nitrogen in effluent to meet the new Environmental Protection Agency and Chesapeake Bay Program goals of 4.7 million lb per year or less in 2014.

Please be aware that you must wear close-toed shoes and a hard hat on the plant.

Date: May 17, 2011

Time: 11:00 a.m.

Place: Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant, 5000 Overlook Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C. 20032

Tours of the plant will be available.
