Town of Remington Sanitary Sewer Rehabilitation

7/16/2021

The Authority initiated a comprehensive study of the Infiltration and Inflow (I&I) problems experienced in the wastewater collection system of the Remington Wastewater Treatment Plant, which includes Town of Remington, Bealeton, and Opal service districts.  Based on the study, downtown Remington was identified as an area with the highest I&I and very rapid response to storm events suggesting that there were direct sources of inflow to the sanitary sewer system.  When groundwater and stormwater enter the Authority’s sanitary sewer collection system, known as I&I, wastewater treatment facilities become less efficient and systems become strained.  Also since all water entering a wastewater treatment facility must be treated as wastewater, the operational costs increase proportional to the amount of clean water entering the sanitary sewer system due to I&I.
