Md. funds upgrade to wastewater plant
The Maryland Board of Public Works has approved a $1.47 million state supplemental grant increase for Elkton to upgrade the Elkton Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The project involves upgrading the existing wastewater treatment plant to improve nutrient removal.
The goal is to reduce nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations. The upgraded facility should show a 79 percent decrease in nitrogen levels and a 86 percent decrease in phosphorus levels for effluent entering the Big Elk River and Chesapeake Bay.
The plant processes 2.7 million gallons of wastewater per day.
