Slidell Mayor Greg Cromer was joined by city officials this morning to cut the ribbon and unveil all of the new improvements at the Terrace Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2023.
The improvements to the Terrace Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) include construction of a completely new headworks facility and rehabilitation of major, critical equipment utilized by the plant to treat sewage to acceptable levels for discharge into the environment.
This project was funded through a Department of Environmental Quality State Revolving Fund Loan. The total cost of the project is $8.8 million. The project engineer is H. Davis Cole & Associates, LLC.
The Terrace Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant has enjoyed a long standing record of compliance with the requirements of the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ). With LDEQ requirements becoming increasingly strict with regards to the protection of the environment, this significant investment into the WWTP represents a proactive approach to compliance with regulations putting the City of Slidell ahead of the curve and continuing its record of compliance far into the future.
