Wastewater project flows into the future

MILFORD — The Kent County Regional Resource Recovery Facility, or as it was know in the past, the Kent County Wastewater Treatment Facility, celebrated the completion of its 2-year, $24 million nutrient removal and capacity expansion project on Friday. The most notable change brought to the Milford facility by the project is that it’s capacity has been increased from 16 million gallons per day to 20 million gallons per day. “The project is the culmination of several years of planning and design,” said Andrew Jakubowitch, director of Kent County Public Works. “We currently receive a flow of 12 and a half million gallons per day, but now we can handle 20 million. The upgrades provide additional capacity so if larger businesses move to our county, they’ll have more available capacity for all the wastewater flows from their businesses.”
