Patapsco Manages Increased Demand with Help from Core

The Patapsco Wastewater Treatment Plant is a secondary treatment facility with enhanced nutrient removal (ENR), chlorination and de-chlorination, situated on 69 acres on the Patapsco River at Wagner’s Point. The plant has grown from 5 million gallons per day (MGD) to its present-day 63.0 MGD and required additional methanol Methanol storage. Methanol is used in the nutrient removal process.

Patapsco selected (6) 12,000 gallon ConVault tanks for their high degree of safety storing methanol that is used to lower nitrogen levels for improving the water quality in rivers and bays downstream from plants. The storage systems feature stainless steel fittings and valves, flame arrestors, pressure vacuum vents, and digital monitoring. Aluminum stairs and tank top railings provide fall protection for maintenance workers.
