C&E Services provides all management, labor, supervision, materials, repair parts, equipment, engineering support, and related engineering services to operate, maintain, and repair two industrial wastewater treatment plants at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The two plants, Dalmar and Plating, are critical for the Bureau’s mission, as they treat wastewater from the printing and engraving operations which include U.S. currency and postage stamps, as well as other security documents required by other governmental and non-government organizations. The Dalmar Plant receives wastewater directly from the printing operations and operates on a continuous daily schedule, 24 hours/day. The plant receives wastewater from plate-cleaning operations and is operated on a batch basis, two to three days per week. In performing its mission, BEP generates various waste products in the form of non-radioactive liquids and solids, which require disposal. The water treatment process C&E provides removes metals, oils, inks, and grease to meet requirements of the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority Discharge Permit.
