Performance of Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant

Performance of Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant The treatment performance of twostage secondary treatmentconsisting of a trickling filter followed by activated sludge processfor treatment of combined municipal and industrial wastewater isdetermined. The municipal wastewater treatment plant is located inSolon, Ohio, where the treatment units include grit tanks, primaryclarifiers, trickling filters, aeration tanks, secondary clarifiers,tertiary filters and chlorine contact tanks. The treatment performancedata for a 12month period in 1989 was evaluated. The average totalplant flow was 2.82 MGD millions gallons per day which consisted of2.19 MGD industrial wastewater and 0.63 MGD domestic wastewater. Rawwastewater was of a high strength mainly due to the contribution fromindustrial sources. After different degrees of treatment the values oftotal suspended solids TSS and biochemical oxygen demand BOD met USEnvironmental Protection Agency standards. This plant has good treatmentperformance with 99 per cent BOD and 98 per cent TSS removalefficiencies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Environmental Management and Health Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The treatment performance of twostage secondary treatmentconsisting of a trickling filter followed by activated sludge processfor treatment of combined municipal and industrial wastewater isdetermined. The municipal wastewater treatment plant is located inSolon, Ohio, where the treatment units include grit tanks, primaryclarifiers, trickling filters, aeration tanks, secondary clarifiers,tertiary filters and chlorine contact tanks. The treatment performancedata for a 12month period in 1989 was evaluated. The average totalplant flow was 2.82 MGD millions gallons per day which consisted of2.19 MGD industrial wastewater and 0.63 MGD domestic wastewater. Rawwastewater was of a high strength mainly due to the contribution fromindustrial sources. After different degrees of treatment the values oftotal suspended solids TSS and biochemical oxygen demand BOD met USEnvironmental Protection Agency standards. This plant has good treatmentperformance with 99 per cent BOD and 98 per cent TSS removalefficiencies.
