Environmental Disposal Corporation
Environmental Disposal Corporation (EDC); a public utility located in Bedminster, providing sewage collection, treatment, and disposal services for the town. NSU was contracted to perform design/build services for the system’s expansion. In addition, NSU has continually operated the system during and after the construction process.
EDC was in need of a customized solution for an expansion to better serve the growing population of 30,000 residents, plus municipal and commercial properties. The site had physical space limitations and needed a customized solution. The facility needed to stay operational during the expansion and upgrade.
The facility utilizes industry leading, highly advanced treatment technology for nitrogen removal which meets the State’s direct reuse standards. The system also removes both biological phosphorus and nitrogen using the Bardenpho process, a multistage advanced biological treatment system.
- Facility capacity increased 40%
- Removed biological phosphorus and nitrogen
- No service interruption during construction
NSU’s customized approach allowed the facility to grow 40% from a capacity of 1.5 million gallons of wastewater treatment per day to 2.1 million gallons per day. Our methodology included the development of innovative design components to fit within the site’s physical space limitations. As customers needed to utilize their services while the expansion was underway, NSU developed procedures that allowed the existing facility to remain operational through construction completion.
Accordingly, service was never interrupted. In addition to the treatment facility, NSU manages its collection system which delivers 100% of the flow to the EDC treatment plant. This system consists of 9 pumping stations and 30+ miles of gravity sewer mains. NSU has maintained the operational contract since construction was completed 20+ years ago.
