Project #1- New 2.1 MGD Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) Facility

Award Winner! – 2008 MD Rural Water WWTP of the Year & 2010 EPA Region 3 O&M

Reid Engineering designed a cost effective wastewater treatment facility after the Town’s previous consultant had preliminary cost estimates that well exceeded the Town’s budget. Reid Engineering was able to offer up value engineering and streamline the design so that the Town would save over six million dollars.  Once again, the Owner found value in saving money for their community and looked to REC for a cost effective and innovative design that would meet the strict Chesapeake Bay Nutrient Limits.  Reid Engineering was the Prime Engineer on the project which consisted of the following services:

  • Roadway Design and Permitting
  • Stormwater Design and Permitting
  • Grading, Erosion and Sediment Control
  • MDDEP Permitting, Grant and Loan Services
  • BioWIN Modeling
  • Structural, Electrical, Civil and Mechanical design of a New 2.5 MGD Bardenpho WWTP that will meet TN = 3 mg/l and TP = 0.3 mg/l.
  • Bidding and Construction Phase Services

More specifically, the New 2.1 MGD WWTP consists of the following components:

  • Reactor Tanks for Equalization and Nitrification/Denitrification
  • Various on-site Pump Stations
  • Clarifiers
  • Lab/Office Building
  • Equipment Building – pumps, blowers, maintenance shop, and chemical feed equipment
  • Filter Building
  • Belt Press Building
  • Chlorination/Dechlorination Chamber
  • 14” Effluent gravity out fall line, 18” Raw Wastewater force main, and 6” Potable water main.

This project has been in operation since 2006 and has consistently met stringent limits.
