The City of Concord has been awarded $166,000 by the State of New Hampshire’s Department of Environmental Services for the installation of a new sludge tank mixing system at the Hall Street Wastewater Treatment Facility. These grant funds are being provided through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) as a necessary investment in wastewater system improvements.
Work is anticipated to begin this summer to replace components to the existing sludge holding tanks. Improvements will include a new system air compressor, system controls, and in-tank piping. The existing components are original parts from when the facility was built in 1979 and are past due for replacement.
Total project costs are around $166,000. The ARPA grant is anticipated to cover the full cost of the project with no additional local funding required.
