BPW Grants $900K for Nitrogen-Removing Septic Systems in Charles

BALTIMORE (June 18, 2009) - The Maryland Board of Public Works approved $23,277,282 million in grants to upgrade wastewater treatment plants, rehabilitate sewers, and provide quality drinking water to Maryland residents. This amount includes $900,000 for a project in Charles County.

The grant from the Bay Restoration Fund will be used to upgrade on-site sewage disposal systems to remove nitrogen. The installation of 60 septic systems with nitrogen-removing technology will reduce the amount of nitrogen going into local waterways by 960 lbs per year, according to State officials.

There were no other grants in the package that were destined for southern Maryland.

The Board is comprised of Governor Martin O’Malley, Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp, and Comptroller Peter Franchot.
