Protecting the Environment: Wastewater Treatment

Watch our video about the H.L. Mooney Advanced Water Reclamation Facility (AWRF) to learn how the Service Authority plays a vital role in protecting the health of people and wildlife living in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Our wastewater treatment process removes harmful bacteria and excess nitrogen and phosphorus from the water, which can have a negative impact on the ecosystem of the watershed. Once the wastewater is treated at the Mooney AWRF, it's released into the Neabsco Creek, a tributary of the Potomac River, which then feeds into to the Chesapeake Bay.
