Mattabassett, CT Wastewater Facility Cleans Up Long Island Sound and Wins Regional Award

The Mattabassett Water Pollution Control Facility in Cromwell, CT recently won an Engineering News Record (ENR) New England Best Regional Project of 2015 award.

The facility was also recognized by ACEC-CT for 'Engineering Excellence' and received the highest Honor award.

Wright-Pierce was the design engineer for the $100 million dollar upgrade that earned recognition for contributing to the clean-up of Long Island Sound by reducing the facility’s nitrogen levels to below state and federal compliance mandates, increasing treatment capacity, and Energy Efficient design components that qualified for more than $1 million in incentive rebates from Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P), now Eversource.

The ENR New England 2015 Best Projects competition honored the top projects in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. An independent jury named 16 projects in 10 categories as award winners. The Mattabassett project won in the Water/Environment category. All winning projects will be featured in the November issue of ENR New England and honored during the ENR annual New England awards event to be held November 12 in Boston.
