SEQUENCING BATCH REACTORS A COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION FOR THE CITY OF HOMESTEAD
Abstract:The City of Homestead operated a 2.25-mgd wastewater treatment facility, which consists of two package treatment plants, one rated at 1.5 mgd and the other at 0.75 mgd. Flows typically exceeded this level, with the excess being discharged to the Miami-Dade system. In 1996, the City authorized URS to perform a feasibility study to recommend a treatment system that would meet the projected 2016 flowrate of 6.0 mgd and the effluent requirements of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) while providing an economical and easily operated and maintained system.
