2009 Upgrade

sign small 

By the year 2010, all point sources and non-point sources, including Wastewater Treatment Facilities (WWTF) and agricultural runoff, are now required to significantly reduce the levels of Nitrogen and Phosphorus entering the Chesapeake Bay.  Dover Township, in its NPDES permit, was mandated by PA DEP to meet these strict standards by October 2010.  In order to accomplish this, the Sewer Authority embarked on a multi-year program to evaluate various alternatives.  The best long-term solution was selected by the Authority and Dover Township.  It is now a $12 million construction project that started June 1, 2009 and was completed in 2011, only to experience the flood of 2011.  See pictures of flood in folder below.

The links below will show you the project as it progresses.
