The City of Baltimore is one of many large cities facing the challenge of aging infrastructure. To address sanitary sewer overflows from its collection system and avoid further violations of the Clean Water Act, the city entered into a Consent Decree with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Department of Justice, and the Maryland Department of the Environment. This presentation will explore the city’s comprehensive approach to rehabilitating its collection system to avoid penalties, provide sustainable operations, and ensure water quality for area residents.

Municipalities and authorities with U.S. EPA-approved industrial pretreatment programs are required to impose discharge limits, known as local limits, on the industrial wastewater discharged by permitted users within their service area. A summary of lessons learned will be presented, based on more than two-dozen recent local limits re-evaluations.

Wastewater treatment plant operators are frequently looking for effective ways to manage biosolids. Traditional belt filter presses are often difficult to operate and maintain and produce cake with lower solids concentrations. Gannett Fleming recently designed four solids upgrades for facilities throughout Pennsylvania, two with centrifuges and two with screw presses. This presentation will discuss the equipment selection process, design, and lessons learned.
