Tertiary Filters Rehabilitation Project Gets Awarded By Fairfax County

The Noman M. Cole Jr. plant was among eight Fairfax County Department of Public Works and Environmental Services (DPWES) facilities awarded by the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the APWA in its annual Mid-Atlantic Region awards. Five of the awards were for Project of the Year and three honorable mentions.

According to Springfield Connection, “The Noman M. Cole Jr. Pollution Control wastewater treatment plant was recently recognized for their “Tertiary Filters Rehabilitation Project,” and “Rehabilitation of Three Equalization Basin and Ancillary Facilities,” by the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) in its annual Mid-Atlantic Region awards. Noman M. Cole Jr. might be best known for his efforts to improve the water quality in the Potomac River. He was the principal author of the 1971 Occoquan Watershed Policy, which prompted the establishment of the Upper Occoquan Sewage Authority and the creation of one of the world’s most advanced sewage treatment plants. Cole died in 1997 at age 63.”
