Multifaceted Trenchless Rehabilitation at the Middletown, Ohio WWTP
This paper describes the multiple trenchless technologies that were evaluated and the ones that were applied to the rehabilitation of a 78la diameter corrugated metal influent line and...

A Tale of Two Bids
In early 1992, the Escambia County Utilities Authority determined that its 2 mgd Avondale Wastewater Treatment Plant should be expanded to 8 mgd to meet the growing needs of the Pensacola,...

Automatic Control of Flocculation Processes
A control system for flocculation, used in water and wastewater treatment operations is being developed. The approach is based on detailed particle size distribution measurements of influent...

Biofilm Sorption of Natural Organic Material
The biosorption of non-ozonated and ozonated natural organic matter (NOM) onto a dense biofilm was investigated at the University of Colorado Environmental Engineering laboratories. Bench-scale...

The Evaluation of Empty Bed Contact Time on the Biodegradation of Pentachlorophenol using an Anaerobic GAC Fluidized Bed
The objective of this research is to evaluate the effects of decreasing the empty-bed contact time (EBCT) on pentachlorophenol and its intermediates utilizing an anaerobic granular activated...

Advantages of Installing Influent Fine Screens at a Large Wastewater Treatment Plant

Interruption of Sewer Crown Corrosion—Ecological Solutions
Competitive inhibition of acid production by thiobacilli was investigated by encouraging the growth of potential competitors. Two-organism competition experiments (Thiobacillus sp. vs....

Reliability-Based Estimates of Wetland Detention Times for Wastewater Treatment
Determination of the hydraulic residence or detention time is often the first step in design of wetlands constructed for wastewater treatment. Current methods for estimating wetland detention...

Bottom Plugging Dynamics in Recharge Basins
The Orange County Water District is investigating the reasons why percolation rates in deep recharge basins rapidly decrease. The interrelationship between microbiological activities in...

Full-Scale Evaluation of Filter Influent Chlorination and Ozonation
Ozone and chlorine applied ahead of pressure filters are compared to determine the effect of the chemical addition on the pressure differential across the filter bed. The study was significant...

Removal of Phenol from a Brine Aquifer: 2 Years of Operation
The article describes a pilot plant project to biologically treat groundwater polluted with phenols. The treatment scheme was based on laboratory tests, technical and economic analysis....

Sulfide Control in Omaha and Cedar Rapids
Omaha, Nebraska, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa have been involved in efforts to control sulfide in major interceptors, at the influent to the treatment plants, and within the treatment facilities....

Performance Study of the Lagoon at Inuvik, N.W.T.
Since 1957, Inuvik's sewage has been discharged into a lagoon situated northwest of the townsite. In 1982 the lagoon was upgraded to a two-stage system. Two primary cells...

Potential for Nitrate Removal from Groundwater Supplies Using Biological Deintrification
Nitrate concentrations in groundwater supplies have been increasing over the years throughout many areas in the U. S. to the point of posing potential health dangers to a multitude of...

A Modified RBC Design: Performance Evaluation
An RBC (rotating biological contactor) system was designed using Pall rings type 40, and tested under high organic surface conditions. Influent soluble BOD averaged at 55 mg/l, equivalent...

Predicting Carbon Adsorption of Organics from Humid Air
Increased levels of humidity resulted in reduced adsorption capacity for trichloroethylene (TCE) at low influent concentrations on a microporous activated carbon. Water vapor also reduced...

Preliminary Evaluation of Submerged Aquatic Macrophytes in a Pilot-Scale Aquatic Treatment System
A study was done to determine which species of submerged aquatic macrophytes (Elodea nuttallii, Myriophyllum heterophyllum, Ceratophyllum demersum) were suitable candidates for use in...

Impact of Dynamic Loading on Bio-Phosphorus Removal
The ability of bench-scale activated sludge biological phosphorus removal systems to produce effluents with consistently low phosphorus concentrations was influenced by influent TOC/COD...

Settling of Dredged Material Slurries
Most environmental engineers, accustomed to dealing with clarification of suspensions containing approximately 150 mg/1, find it difficult to comprehend dredged material slurries, in which...
