From Water Online —-
The Maryland Rural Water Association has named the Elkton Wastewater Treatment Plant the System of the Year in the state for 2010. The $30M, 3.2-MGD biological nutrient removal / enhanced nutrient removal wastewater treatment plant was brought online in 2008. Receiving its formal dedication on April 30, 2010, the plant was constructed as part of a larger effort to reduce pollution to and restore the Chesapeake Bay. The facility is expected to reduce effluent nitrogen by 80 percent and decrease phosphorus by 70 percent to the Big Elk River and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay.
