HOPEWELL, VA. – Hopewell Water Renewal (HWR), formerly Hopewell Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility, recently completed construction of its new facility, with the addition of a Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) and Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) system. The new facility has been designed to handle the future flows and loads anticipated for 2040. A ribbon cutting was hosted by HWR on Monday, July 10. The City of Hopewell called for proposals for the new facility and ultimately selected World Water Works, Inc. to install the MBBR-DAF.

“It has been a privilege to be a part of this project with the two selected technologies being core to our process offering.” said Daniel Dair, vice president of innovation at World Water Works. “We look forward to seeing the technology operational.”

HWR discharges to the James River, a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay. In order to protect the health of the Bay, nutrient reduction requirements have been imposed upon point and non-point source discharges. With HWR’s unique combination of industrial and domestic wastewaters, several pilot treatment technologies have been studied with World Water Works’ Ideal MBBR-DAF TM chosen as the most reliable treatment technology.

“HWR began studying nutrient reduction treatment technologies in 1996. Finally selecting and installing World Water Works technology has been 20 years in the making. We are excited to do our part to “Save the Bay.” said Jeanie Grandstaff, director of City of Hopewell Water Renewal.

“The process combination selected will allow HWR to meet the ever-advancing water treatment requirements that will go into effect later next year,” said Dair. “The goal of the updated permit limitations is to create better water quality for wildlife and recreational use in the Chesapeake Bay.”
