Work is nearing completion on Phase III of this $61 million capital improvement project at our Plum Island Wastewater Treatment Plant.
About the project This phase will create new headworks and wastewater clarifiers. New technology in the form of an anoxic selector basin is also being installed. This new basin changes how we treat wastewater by creating an “anoxic zone.” The basin will improve our treatment process now, but it also enables us to meet any new regulations in the future.
The sewer project is an important part of how we carefully plan for the future. Through projects like these, we remain poised to handle the rapid growth and development of our area for generations to come.
Timeline We anticipate this project to be complete in late 2018.
