What

Dedication ceremony for the upgrade of the Brunswick Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Frederick County, Maryland.

These improvements will decrease the amount of nutrients discharged into the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay and help Maryland meet our goals under the Chesapeake Bay Agreement.
