OBG's work to improve West Point
At West Point, OBG is currently providing a $70 million advanced treatment project to improve the Target Hill Wastewater Treatment Plant, which serves the entire military academy. Teamed with Atkins, OBG is designing a new 3.5-mgd advanced treatment plant that will replace the academy's existing facility and address capacity overages, outdated equipment, and collection system deficiencies. The new plant will employ modern treatment methods and advanced technology to meet state environmental permits for water treatment, as well as feature sustainability elements to achieve multiple net-zero energy goals.
