Wastewater Design and Management
Township of Burlington
Burlington County, NJ
F. X. Browne, Inc. designed a
3.65 MGD Phased Oxidation Ditch treatment plant and pump station for Burlington Township. The innovative, cost-saving Phased Oxidation
Ditch treatment plant was selected since it was the most cost-effective and
energy efficient system. It was selected based on an exhaustive review of
wastewater literature and a trip to Denmark to
observe this treatment process in operation.
The EPA has recognized the Phase Oxidation Ditch treatment plant as an
innovative technology due to its cost effectiveness, low energy requirements,
and low operational costs. Selection of the Phased Isolation Ditch, the first
of its kind in the United
States, resulted in a construction
cost saving of $4 million dollars relative to other more conventional systems.
