The Brush Creek Water Pollution Control Plant (Plant) is located on Pennsylvania Route 993 in North Huntingdon Township, Westmoreland County, and is operated by the Western Westmoreland Municipal Authority (WWMA) under National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit No. PA0027570.  The Plant was placed in operation on December 28, 1977, and serves residents of North Huntingdon Township, Penn Township, Hempfield Township, Irwin Borough, Manor Borough, and North Irwin Borough.

The WWMA owns, operates, and maintains the Brush Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant with a design capacity of 4.4 mgd, approximately eight miles of interceptor sewer, one pump station in Ardara, and three combined sewer overflow regulator chambers.  The member municipalities own and maintain their own collector sewers.  The Boroughs of Irwin and Manor are the only communities that have combined sewers tributary to the WWMA system.

On January 21, 1999, the WWMA Board of Directors authorized HDR Engineering, Inc. to complete a feasibility report in which seven projects were to be evaluated.  These projects represent improvements to the Plant located in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania.  These projects, which are summarized in this section, include the following:

The purpose of the projects listed above is to improve wastewater collection and treatment, to meet current and pending regulatory requirements, and to improve operation and maintenance activities at the Plant.

For additional project information, please refer to the 5-year and 10-year project plans.  For projects that have been completed, please refer to WWMA's Recent Capital Additions.
