The MCWRF is located in the northern part of Charlotte, NC, and is one of Charlotte Water’s seven wastewater treatment facilities including five large plants and two package plants. The facility was originally constructed in 1979 and discharges treated effluent to Mallard Creek which flows to Rocky River and is part of the Yadkin-Pee Dee River Basin.

The MCWRF has a permitted capacity of 12 MGD and is a conventional activated sludge plant with tertiary filters, UV disinfection, and centrifuge dewatering. The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit requirements include CBOD limits of 4.2 (summer)/8.3 (winter) mg/l and NH3 limits of 1.0 (summer)/2.0 (winter) mg/l. The MCWRF also has a non-discharge permit allowing a portion of the treated effluent to be further disinfected with sodium hypochlorite and pumped to a nearby golf course and public park for irrigation.

In addition to earning and maintaining ISO 14001 certification since 2007, MCWRF has received a National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) Peak Performance award annually since 2004 for excellence in permit compliance.

The technical presentation is titled “PCB Cleanup at the Mallard Creek WRF.”  It will detail the recently completed decontamination of the plant after an illegal PCB dumping incident in 2014.  Treatment Plant Supervisor Henry Eudy will present.
