PLANNING: HDR Selected for Sustainability Study for Denver Metro Wastewater Reclamation District

The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District has selected HDR to perform a sustainability study for its proposed 20-24 million-gallon-per-day Northern Treatment Plant, which is to be located just north of Brighton along the South Platte River.

The study will help the District develop goals and objectives for incorporating sustainability in the planning, design, construction and operation of the new treatment plant, which is scheduled to be up and running by 2015. The District is in the initial planning phase for a new treatment plant, transmission system and effluent pump back facilities. Results also will help District officials develop a decision-making process that supports a practical, quantifiable, cost-effective approach to sustainability.

As part of overall planning and design for the Northern Treatment Plant, the District plans to incorporate sustainability concepts that are evaluated and selected through a business case evaluation process.
