About

THIS PROJECT

The Montebello Water Filtration Plant improvements include major infrastructure upgrades to the facility in Baltimore, Maryland, which was originally built in the early 1900s. Various process upgrades include the restoration of concrete to sedimentation basins, filtration cells and wash water tanks.
