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
