One of the main challenges faced by Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) is the control of algae blooms. High algae concentrations create problems for process performance and increase operating expenditure for cleaning and maintenance activities.
The LUS has shown to be a viable solution at controlling algae growth in the balance tanks at ATP. The results include:
- Significant reduction of cleaning and maintenance of balance tanks
- Less frequent backwash required of tertiary cloth filers
- Aesthetic improvement in balance tank
- Reduce risk of exceeding licence limits
