Salisbury City Wins In Waste Water Treatment Plant Suit

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - It's a legal battle that's been going on for nearly five years, and now - it's over. The city of Salisbury has finally won a little more than $2.1 million from Construction Dynamics Group, Inc., over the city's waste water treatment plant.

The Maryland Court of Special Appeals upheld their decision Friday ordering CDG to reimburse the city for the plant, after it was argued that the plant didn't meet promised standards. It's an ongoing issue with the plant's design engineers and after the victory with the final company involved, the city has won nearly $13 million of the $40 million paid.

"We promised the citizens we'd do our best to get back some of the investment they've made, not only as city tax payers but as state tax payers," said Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton. "And that's another victory for us today."

CDG has 30 days to request another appeal of this case.

The city plans to upgrade the facility using parts from this project for Enhanced Nutrient Removal. It's an effort to improve overall quality of local waterways that could many take years.
