Star City Wastewater Treatment Center upgrades benefit Star City

STAR CITY— The Morgantown Utility Board (MUB) upgrade project at the Star City Wastewater Treatment Center has provided new opportunities for Star City through partnership and generated revenue.
Chris Dale, communications director for MUB, said the project began in December 2016, when the project was awarded, for a cost of $101,000,000.
Dale said the treatment plant, built in 1965, required significant upgrades to handle new federal regulations, protecting the environment and providing for the continued growth of the Morgantown area.
“These upgrades include installation of new technologies, electrical systems and increasing plant capacity,” he said. “This project will include installation of a membrane system that will provide state-of-the-art treatment processes. This project will also increase the treatment capacity of the plant from the current 12 million gallons a day (mgd) to 20.8 mgd, reduce combined sewer overflows (CSOs) and be expandable to meet future growth.”
Dale said MUB purchased the old 84 Lumber property, near the treatment center because it was already equipped for the project’s needs.
