The 2015 improvement project of the New Rochelle Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant was the largest Public Works project ever undertaken in Westchester County, with a construction cost of $235 M. The plant serves a population of 65,000 residents of the City of New Rochelle, the Town of Mamaroneck, the Village of Larchmont and the Village of Pelham Manor. The project has been a success delivering excellent nitrogen removals, on time and within budget. The BAF process has exceeded performance expectations and has reduced the Total Nitrogen discharge from the plant from approximately 2,000 lbs./day in 2014 to approximately 200 lbs./day in 2015. The plant has been in compliance with NYSDEC nitrogen discharge limits since January 31, 2015.

The improvements to the New Rochelle Wastewater Treatment Plant were designed to address the State's permit conditions, required modification of the existing facilities as well as the construction of several new facilities. Among the new facilities, the improvements included: New nitrogen removal facilities, New ultraviolet light (UV) disinfection system, Expanded secondary treatment tank capacity and additional sludge thickening capacity.
