Danville Forms Partnership with Severn Trent

Severn Trent Services was selected by the city of Danville, Va. to provide contract management, operations and maintenance services for the city’s 24 million-gallon-per-day Northside Wastewater Treatment Plant, according to a Jan. 26 press release.

Severn Trent also will be responsible for the city’s industrial pretreatment program, 11 pump stations, and biosolids land application program. The three-year partnership is valued at $6 million.

During the first two years of the partnership, the city will modify the facility to make it a more efficient operation for the lower flows being received. This may involve a process change.

“Our partnership with Danville builds on our presence in Virginia, which includes a contract with the cities of Bristol, Tennessee/Virginia,” noted Dana Kaas, vice president, Operating Services. “We are proud to partner with the city of Danville. By putting their trust in a private operator, the city of Danville is proof public-private partnerships bring real value, especially in these times when municipalities are facing their most pressing financial challenges.”
