Anne Arundel County Capital Projects

As part of Anne Arundel County's Capital Improvement Program, the County's Department of Public Works is managing several countywide infrastructure projects with the help from Heery International.

In 2011, Anne Arundel County’s Department of Public Works selected Heery for the fourth time, continuing support that began in 1988, to help manage its capital improvement program. Heery is managing projects from planning and budgeting through design, procurement, construction and performance phases in the same capacity as the Bureau of Engineering’s in-house project management staff. Heery has been responsible for over 300 capital projects worth $1.1 billion. In addition to specific projects such as the $140.8 million Cox Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade, Heery has managed entire programs such as the Elevated Water Storage Tanks Program. The team has also assisted in developing the County’s tools critical to achieving consistent project delivery results, including the County’s Project Management Manual and the Sewer Pump Station Priorities Matrix.  

Heery oversaw more than 300 capital project for the County, including:

Cox Creek Water Reclamation Facility ENR Process Conversion
The Cox Creek Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) is a 30 million gallon per day (MGD) municipal wastewater treatment plant located in Curtis Bay, MD. Work at this $140.8 million facility consists  of multiple projects associated with the Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) and non-ENR funded upgrades for this facility. Upon completion of this facility, it will have the capacity to process 45 MGD of effluent and will reduce nitrogen discharge into the Chesapeake Bay by 50% and reduce phosphorous discharge by 80%. The state-of-the art membrane filtration system at Cox Creek will be the first of its size in the State of Maryland.

Ridgeview Plaza Sewer Pump Station, Force Main and Gravity Interceptor
Ridgeview Plaza Sewer Pump Station’s upgrades included construction of a new sewer pumping station located to the southwest corner of the existing Ridgeview Plaza Shopping Center on MD Route 175 as well as installation of gravity sewer interceptor and force mains on Disney Road and MD Route 175 in Anne Arundel County.

Stormwater Management Program
In 2013, Anne Arundel County again turned to Heery, joined by PB, to develop and implement the County’s newly mandated Watershed Protection and Restoration Capital Improvement Program. The County’s $75 million per year program will design and construct storm water management infrastructure improvements necessary to comply with Federal and State clean water requirements.
