DC Water is doing its part to help protect the Chesapeake Bay through a new Biosolids Management Program (BMP) currently underway at the Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Blue Plains plant is the largest of its kind in the world, serving over two million residents of Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. The BMP will reduce the quantity and improve the quality of the biosolids produced by Blue Plains and will also generate enough biogas to provide one-third of the total energy used at the plant. These improvements will help DC Water lower operating costs, improve energy efficiency, and reduce its carbon footprint.

This is a joint event with the American Society of Civil Engineers' National Capital Section


Brent Christ, Construction Supervisor for DC Water
