Abstract:

The design of a large water reclamation plant to produce a high quality effluent for industrial reuse using an integrated approach for nutrient removal has been shown to be a viable method of wastewater treatment. The Central Contra Costa Sanitary District's 30 mgd (ll3,500 m³/day) facility is designed combining various liquid and sludge unit processes resulting in a very high effluent quality with a very stable operation. Because of the rigid quality demands of industrial water as well as stringent San Francisco Bay area discharge requirements, a dual computer system is used to monitor and control the complete plant process.
