Project Overview

Construction Updates To Wastewater Treatment Plant

M.F. Ronca & Sons began construction on the $148M Fritz Island Wastewater Treatment Plant Project in the Spring of 2017. The plant services fourteen municipalities in the surrounding Reading, Pennsylvania area. Once completed, the plant will handle 27.4 MG (104 million liters) of sewage per day, serving 130,000 people in the region.

The wastewater treatment plant on Fritz Island, in the city of Reading, Pennsylvania, was originally constructed in the late 1800s. In 1929, the city constructed a larger facility on the current site, near Angelica Creek and the Mifflin Arm of the Schuylkill River to handle increased population.
