The article presents information on the upgradation of New York City's largest wastewater treatment plant at Brooklyn. The mammoth project, costing more than $3 billion, will process 310 million gallons of wastewater per day to federal secondary treatment standards by late 2007 and give neighbors much needed odor relief and community amenities. The project, mandated by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 and a subsequent consent order, also involves dismantling an old petroleum tank farm and placing or replacing structures in a challenging three-phase sequence. To date about $1.7 billion has been awarded or completed.
