Wastewater Design and Management

Middle Smithfield Township Municipal Authority

Monroe County, PA           

F. X. Browne, Inc. has served as the Middle Smithfield Township Municipal Authority Engineer since 1986.  Middle Smithfield Township hired F. X. Browne, Inc. to revise their Wastewater Management Plan which had been completed by another consultant.  We revised the plan and recommended that the Township construct a regional wastewater collection system and purchase a privately-owed treatment plant which would be expanded to 1 mgd and used as a municipal wastewater treatment facility. 

F. X. Browne, Inc. assisted the Township in establishing a Municipal Authority.  We designed the regional sewer interceptor system which included over 12,000 linear feet of pressure and gravity sewer line and six wastewater pumping stations. We delineated wetlands and watercourses within the 50-foot wide sewer interceptor right-of-way and evaluated alternative interceptor locations to avoid wetland and other protected areas. We negotiated a financial agreement with a major developer to guarantee the financial success of the wastewater facilities.
