The article focuses on the rehabilitation of the New York City Department of Environmental Protections (NYC-DEP) North River Water Pollution Control Plant (NRWPCP). The plant processes raw sewage for the Western part of Manhattan and treats 170 million gallons per day (gpd), with a peak of 340 million gpd during wet weather. Rehabilitation of the facility included the use of three new York-Shipley Global 800-bhp and one new 200-bhp three-pass, water-backed, LPS packaged firetube boilers with Weishaupt tri-fuel.
