R3M Engineering has demonstrated expertise in wastewater treatment systems ranging in size from 50,000 gallons per day to over 140 MGD capacity. Our dedicated staff can apply our wealth of knowledge and experience to a range of process, mechanical, electrical, and civil engineering disciplines.

R3M Engineering currently serves as Authority Engineer for the Middlesex County Utilities Authority (MCUA), the Bayshore Regional Sewerage Authority (BRSA) and the Readington-Lebanon Sewerage Authority (RLSA).

We have been the primary design engineer for over $24 million of other Capital Improvements to the MCUA’s 140 MGD Central Treatment Plant, including upgrades and modification to Primary Setting Tanks, Final Clarifiers, Dewatered Cake Sludge pumps, Dewatering Building OCS Improvements, Aeration Tank Equipment Modifications, Rehabilitation of the Gravity Thickener OCS scrubber system, and installation of an Auxiliary Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO).

The evaluation, design, implementation and optimization of wastewater treatment processes require proven knowledge and understanding of application of chemical, mechanical, electrical, structural and hydraulic principles. Our staff integrates these principles with the appropriate regulatory and operational criteria to achieve the intended performance of each process and system.

Our experience in the rehabilitation of process systems and components provide opportunities for our clients to rebuild and reconstruct existing systems in a cost effective manner. We implemented construction contracts to rehabilitate primary setting tanks by repairing structural elements of the tanks and traveling bridge systems, and replacing mechanical and electrical components in lieu of full equipment replacement, which lowered the overall project costs and construction periods when the tanks would be out of service.

We have also utilized current and advanced technologies for odor control processes, chemical systems, sludge processing systems. Our experience in the design, construction and rehabilitation of water bearing structures is an essential element in maintaining and upgrading in-plant infrastructure.
