  • A Regulatory Perspective on Maintenance of Disinfection Systems

    ABSTRACTThe Clean Water Act contains requirements to set water quality standards for all contaminants, including bacterial contaminants, in surface waters. Wastewater treatment cannot be expected to remove all of the bacterial contaminants, and as a result, many organisms remain in the waste stream. Therefore, disinfection of treated wastewaters is designed to reduce bacterial numbers to a safe ...

  • Primary Treatment in Onsite Systems: Factors that Influence Performance

    ABSTRACTMethodology, preliminary results and future plans for an on-going Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF) funded research project, WERF project number 04-DEC-7, are presented. The objective of this project is to identify, compile, analyze, and report on the existing body of literature and other data sources addressing the performance of primary treatment units (septic tanks and ...

  • What are the parameters of an extended-aeration activated-sludge system?

    The activated sludge process is the most widely used biological water and wastewater treatment. As is well known, by its means, suspended-growth microorganisms are applied to breakdown wastes. Aeration, the mixing of air and a liquid, is the means used to speed the reactions involved. Aeration methods include spraying the liquid into the air; diffusing air into the liquid or agitating the liquid ...

  • How to Optimize Oxidation Systems for Efficient Operation

    Emphasis on air management within converting-process dryers and ovens is critical to the design of pollution-control systems for treating exhausts containing VOCs (volatile organic compounds). Efficient air management allows the pollution-control system to be optimally sized to meet the needs of the process. Good process control further defines the emission stream by avoiding the need for large ...

  • Response of Different Types of Biosolids to Simultaneous Dewatering and Pathogens Inactivation by Electrokinetic System

    Only electrokinetic system and its effect on the inactivation of pathogenic organisms in biosolids were investigated. Bench scale experiments were conducted in a series of electrokinetic (EK) reactors. Ten EK reactors were set up with different types of sewage sludge: primary, secondary (attached growth culture), secondary (activated sludge), and anaerobically digested sludge, coming from Auteuil ...

  • Filtronics offers the lowest lifecycle costs for its water filtration systems

    One of the biggest factors those seeking city water treatment or wastewater treatment systems must take into account is cost. Many manufacturers of water treatment systems make the cost of operating their ...

  • Investigating Steam Application for Reducing Foaming in Activated Sludge Systems

    Filamentous foam, the dispersion of gas bubbles that creates a dense brown scum layer on the surface of activated sludge basins and secondary clarifiers, is caused by the predominance of mycolic acid-containing actinomycetes, such as Gordonia amarae (formerly Nocardia amarae) and the filament Microthrix parvicella. The accumulation of foam causes a variety of operational, safety, and aesthetic ...
