JACKSONVILLE, Florida April 9, 2014 BCR Environmental announced today that the Berkeley County Public Service Sewer District (BCPSSD) has executed a contract to install CleanB systems at four of its wastewater treatment plants to upgrade to Class B biosolids production. BCPSSD chose to install the CleanB systems as a lower capital and operating cost alternative to aerobic digestion.
Located on the Potomac River, Berkeley County is part of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, the largest estuary in the United States. Excessive nutrient runoff is a major challenge facing the bay, and almost three quarters of the bayâ€™s tidal waters are considered impaired by chemical contaminants. The BCPSSD is currently undertaking an ambitious improvement program to reduce nutrient discharge.
