ACEC Engineering Excellence 2017: Newtown Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant Upgrade in Brooklyn, NY

Posted by Infra on Monday, July 3rd, 2017

2017 ACEC Engineering Excellence Awards

The New York, NY based joint venture of Michael Baker International, CB&I, and Gannett Fleming has earned an Honor Award for exemplary achievement in the American Council of Engineering Companies’ (ACEC) 50th annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) for the Newtown Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant Upgrade in Brooklyn, NY.

Innovative upgrades helped double this waste water plant’s wet-weather processing capacity to 720 million gallons per day, while increasing sediment and grit removal to 92 percent and reducing odor. To reduce discharges into the East River, the project team utilized advanced 4D modeling technology to deliver four new treatment components— totaling $1.3 billion—and inspected the interiors of eight, 140-foot-high egg-shaped anaerobic digesters that sit atop the plant. They also implemented a biogas program that is expected to heat nearly 5,200 homes and reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by more than 90,000 metric tons by the end of this year.
