City Of Danville, Virginia Forms Public-Private Partnership With Severn Trent Services
Severn Trent Services was selected by the City of Danville, Va. to provide contract management, operations and maintenance services for the City's 24 million-gallon-per-day Northside Wastewater Treatment Plant. Severn Trent also will be responsible for the City's industrial pretreatment program, 11 pump stations and biosolids land application program. The three-year partnership is valued at $6M.
