The Patapsco Wastewater Treatment Plant is a secondary treatment facility with enhanced nutrient removal (ENR), chlorination and de-chlorination, situated on 69 acres on the Patapsco River at Wagner’s Point.
The plant has grown from 5 million gallons per day (MGD) capacity in 1940 to its present day 63.0 MGD. It serves an area of approximately 184 square miles and an estimated population of approximately 450,000. The plant employs approximately 180 people to treat wastewater generated from Baltimore City, as well as Baltimore, Howard, and Anne Arundel counties. Wastewater treatment at Patapsco consists of grit removal, screening out large solid materials, settling out solids during an hour’s retention, and removal of suspended and dissolved materials. These processes remove almost all of the pollutants that enter the treatment facility.
