M2 Construction built a brand new Wastewater Treatment Plant for the Town of Betterton. The conversion included going from a limited process with a digester and blowers to a fully automated new SBR and Denite Filtration process. M2 installed new influent piping that included a new headworks building with a spiral screen and grit removal that flows to a new influent wet well. The wet well pumps to three new SBR tanks and Denitrification filters for the main process. There are multiple chemical injection and methanol insertion points before the new UV equipment. M2 added a new effluent pumpstation with chemical feed and sampling before connecting to the existing outfall. The plant also got a new office building, with garage storage, additional emergency overflow storage as well as rehabilitation of the sludge drying beds. This was a challenging schedule that the M2 team overcame to put the plant online in December 2018. M2 is proud to announce that the Town of Betterton was awarded the best Wastewater Treatment of 2018 at the MD Rural Water Conference.
