(Port Orchard) - An Open House is set for February 27 to explain a new project at the Central Kitsap Treatment Plant in Brownsville. The Central Kitsap Treatment Plant Resource Recovery Project has a two main purposes. The project addresses necessary repairs and rehabilitation of outdated, inefficient, and undersized sewage treatment equipment and incorporates processes that allow the recovery for beneficial use from the waste streams. " This project exemplifies the commitment of Kitsap County to provide dependable infrastructure for its citizens while conserving natural resources and protecting the environment we share," said Barbara Zaroff, the Engineer for the project.

The repairs and upgrades include improvements to biosolid handling and storage equipment, the in-plant process water system, electrical gear, as well as the mechanical and hydraulic equipment used in the process. The resource recovery elements includes the capture of methane gas for co-generation of heat and electricity to be used throughout the plant, and the removal of nitrogen from the liquid waste stream for the future production of reclaimed water uses throughout Central Kitsap.

Representatives at the meeting include the Project Engineer, the site superintendent for the contractor, the construction manager and the design engineer from Brown and Caldwell.

Ground-breaking for the construction of this $29 million project is expected  in early March. Work on the project is expected to continue through June, 2015.
