New Hampshire Ave Chiller Site Groundwater Treatment Facility Modernization
3670 New Hampshire Avenue NW, Washington DC 20010
The existing New Hampshire Ave Chiller Site Groundwater Treatment Facility holds a small cooling tower, chiller and electrical equipment that cool nearby underground Metrorail stations. Metro will modernize the water remediation and treatment system housed in the existing facility. This project will enable WMATA to:
- Remediate contaminated groundwater found at the site using two treatment systems.
- Expand the rear section of the building in order to accommodate the new equipment needed to update and modernize the water testing system.
In addition to the modernization benefits, this project will also ensure the site meets local environment compliance mandates.
