Cheyney University WWTP Upgrade

Cheyney University of Pennsylvania has had an on-site wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) since 1912. Over the years this plant has added, removed and upgraded equipment to accommodate the increasing volume of waste dispensed by a growing student population.

With the advent of new dormitories and associated campus building upgrades to support the growing student population, the demolition and replacement of the existing wastewater treatment plant was imperative.

The new wastewater treatment plant consists of a new outdoor raw process screening area, a new process building with an outdoor secondary treatment process and a new tank building. Arora provided MEP and lighting design for the new WWTP.

The project was split into two phases to ensure uninterrupted processing capability.
