Fremont Water Pollution Control Center
This $63.5 million CMAR project included upgrading and expanding the existing wastewater collection system, which was originally built in 1949. The system is a combined sewer overflow that conveys dry weather flow to the wastewater plant at approximately 6 million gallons per day (mgd). The reason for the renovation is to increase the capacity of the Wastewater Treatment Facility from 10 million gallons per day to 24 million gallons per day.
