The County is upgrading the Maryland City Water Reclamation Facility, and its six other treatment plants, to comply with the State’s Bay Restoration Program.


The current treatment process was designed based on earlier nutrient removal goals and must be upgraded to meet Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) standards.  Upgrading to ENR standards will reduce the amount of nitrogen released after treatment to below 4 ml/L. 

DPW will use a combination of State Grant reimbursements and County Bonds to fund this project


  • Improved health of the Chesapeake Bay and local waterways.
  • Significantly reduce nitrogren released after treatment process from 8 mg/L to 3 mg/L.
  • Significantly reduce phosphorous released after treatment process from 2 mg/L to 0.3 mg/L.
  • Meet the pollutant load reduction requirements of the State's Bay Restoration Program.
