Wastewater

Howard County’s waste­water treat­ment plant uses a state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy Enhanced Nutri­ent Removal sys­tem to make it more energy effi­cient and reduce the amount of nitro­gen released into the environment.

Two new back-up gen­er­a­tors at the Lit­tle Patux­ent Water Recla­ma­tion Plant pro­tect the plant from power loss as occurred dur­ing Hur­ri­cane Sandy. Addi­tion­ally, the plant will install a solar energy array to com­pletely off­set the car­bon of the gen­er­a­tors and par­tially off­set the car­bon emis­sions of the plant.
