Virtual Tour of HRSD’s Virginia Initiative Plant Nutrient Reduction Improvement Project
HRSD is undertaking a $156 million project that will upgrade its Virginia Initiative Plant (VIP) in Norfolk by enhancing its ability to remove nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) from wastewater, increasing the hydraulic capacity so the plant can treat additional flows during storms, and replacing aging equipment to improve operations. The VIP project is doing more than protecting public health, improving water quality and enhancing reliable wastewater treatment – it is also providing jobs for contractors and their suppliers.
