The James River SWIFT Facility Treatment Plant and Advanced Nutrient Reduction Improvements Project is the first in a series of groundbreaking projects being undertaken by HRSD to replenish aquifers in the Hampton Roads area. The SWIFT® program unlocks the water resources available in area wastewater treatment plant effluent, treating the water to potable standards and injecting it deep underground. In addition to improving sustainability of the area's water resources and reducing nutrient loading to surface waters, the SWIFT® projects aim to mitigate subsidence of the land surface that is occurring due to aquifer depletion.
