This project consisted of a brand-new Wastewater Treatment plant at the Southern Maryland Prerelease facility and decommission and demolition of the old system after acceptance. The new plant includes a new building with two new concrete tanks. All the concrete was cast in place and performed by M2. The new building includes and electrical room, lab, and open space for new equipment. The plant’s focus was a new Microblox MBR system provided by Ovivo with coarse screen, fine screen, grease interceptor, mixers, pumps, UV, chemical feed, aeration and all associated piping, valves and accessories. The plant was built into the side of a hill and M2 is working with the owner to adjust chemicals and flows in order to meet the required permitted effluent. Once the owner is comfortable with the new plant, the old plant will be taken out of service and demolished in place.
