In 1995, the City of Hartford hired Stockwell Engineers to begin work on their new wastewater treatment facility. The project began with developing a facility plan to evaluate treatment options and to assist the City with securing financing through the State’s Revolving Fund (SRF) program, which was ultimately received. Also, Stockwell assisted the City with acquiring the land along the Interstate 90 corridor for the site after several locations were considered.

Upon selection of the site, Stockwell Engineers began design services for the project. The final design included a 0.81 million gallon per day (MGD) aeration facility with pretreatment and tertiary cells necessary to treat the current population’s wastewater as well as 20 years into the future. The design also included modifications to the existing operation building, adding a pretreatment bar screen, two 10-inch forcemains and a blower building. The facility was constructed and put into operation in 2001 and has served the community well ever since. As the facility reaches its 20-year design life, the City is considering expansion options to serve their growing population and meet stricter permit limits. The team at Stockwell Engineers is again exploring options and looks forward to continuing the success of wastewater treatment for the City of Hartford.
