HANDLING AND DISPOSAL ALTERNATIVES FOR WTP RESIDUALS FOR THE METROPOLITAN WATER DISTRICT OF SALT LAKE AND SANDY
Abstract:The Metropolitan Water District of Salt Lake and Sandy (MWDSLS) completed a Master Plan of System Improvements in 1998. The Master Plan recommended that a detailed evaluation of residual solids management practices be conducted for both the Little Cottonwood Water Treatment Plant (LCWTP) and the proposed Point of the Mountain Water Treatment Plant (POMWTP). The purpose of the residual solids management study was to develop a long-term residual solids management strategy that would maximize the benefit of existing and future water treatment facilities’ solids handling facilities and minimize the long-term cost of residual solids handling for the MWDSLS. This paper provides an overview of long-term residual solids production estimates, solids disposal and dewatering technologies evaluated and recommendations for cost-effective, long-term residual solids handling and disposal.
