The Cedar Creek Wastewater Reclamation Plant (CCWRP) located in Nassau County, NY is a 0.24 cu m/s (5.5 mgd) advanced wastewater treatment (AWT) plant designed to produce a high quality effluent suitable for groundwater recharge. The CCWRP was constructed as a demonstration project under a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grant by additions and modifications to the main 1.96 cu m/s (45 mgd) Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant (CCWPCP). Operation of the CCWRP began in April 1980 and groundwater recharge operations began in October 1982. This research project was initiated with the overall objective of providing preliminary data on the presence of priority pollutants in the Cedar Creek Wastewater Reclamation - Recharge Facilities. The results indicate that 72 priority pollutants were identified in the influent and that significant removals (99%) of some individual compounds were achieved by the plant processes.
