This wastewater treatment facility (WWTF) upgrade was unique because it was the first construction management at risk project in the state of Maine funded by the Clean Water SRF Program. Watch this video story to hear why Robert Pontau, Assistant General Manager of the Brunswick Sewer District, says that using an alternative delivery model to bring experts together was a key to making their recently completed WWTF upgrade a success.

The upgraded WWTF features replacement of many end-of-life systems, a renovated control building with a state-of-the-art dewatering system, a new headworks building, and a new supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA). The SCADA allows for remote operation of systems and equipment, problem detection and alarm dispatch, and real-time data collection. A new garage and heated workshop will protect the District’s valuable vehicle fleet from the weather, permit on-site equipment maintenance and repairs year-round, and allow for quicker response times to winter emergencies.
