 Wastewater Treatment Plant UV Disinfection / Repairs and Improvements


The Wastewater Treatment Plant will undergo an Ultraviolet Disinfection Installation as well as various Repairs and Improvements. The following will take place:

Ultraviolet Disinfection

The plant will upgrate it's disinfection process to Ultraviolet Disinfection. Currently the plant uses Gas Chlorine to disinfect wastewater. This is considered an old technology. Although effective, Gas Chlorine presents a danger to operations staff as well as the surrounding community. Gas Chlorine is very expensive, and also requires Gas Sulfur Dioxide to dechlorinate the wastewater prior to sending it to the Choptank River. Ultraviolet Disinfection uses no chemicals, and modern units are more energy efficient. As soon as the upgrade takes place, chemical usage will drastically go down. Also, since the Town has a solar field in close proximity to the Wastewater Treatment Plant, the energy savings will add to the efficiency of this upgrade.

 Repairs and Various Improvements

The plant will undergo some repairs and improvements as follows:

We are at the very early stages of this project, design should begin sometime in February of 2017. The project should be completed within a year or so.
