CWSRF Projects Being Considered:
Applicant: Chadds Ford Township Sewer Authority County: Delaware Applicant Address: P.O. Box 816
Chadds Ford, PA 19317
Project Description: The Chadds Ford Township Sewer Authority proposes to convert the Ridings Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to a pump station that will convey sewage to the Turner's Mill WWTP for treatment and disposal. A force main will be installed to convey sewage from the Ridings pump station to a gravity sewer system in the Estates at Chadds Ford Development (approximately 850 feet of new force main and gravity sewer). The existing gravity sewer system in the Estates of Chadds Ford Development flows to the Estates pump station where the sanitary sewage is conveyed by an existing force main to Turner's Mill WWTP. The existing Turner's Mill WWTP will be upgraded to accommodate the new flows.
Problem Description: The Ridings WWTP is currently operating within its current National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit parameters; however, the age of the plant's technology, the limitations of its treatment process and its inability to be expanded make continued operation of the plant unsustainable. The project will allow the consolidation of redundant operations at a centralized existing treatment plant (Turner's Mill WWTP) and will avoid anticipated operational issues at the Ridings WWTP, while also meeting future obligations associated with collection and conveyance system operations, maintenance and improvements.
