The First Years Performance of a Membrane Bioreactor Compared with Conventional Wastewater Treatment of Domestic Waste
Abstract:Governor Dummer Academy (GDA) is the oldest private day and boarding school in the United States. Founded in 1763, it is located on a 350-acre campus in Byfield, Massachusetts. The wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) that served the Governor Dummer Academy campus was originally constructed in the 1960's, with upgrade work performed in the 1990's. Despite the upgrade efforts, the WWTP was unable to consistently meet the effluent quality required by the permit under which it operates. This school was faced with the major dilemma of having to increase the throughput capacity of their current conventional wastewater treatment system in order to consistently meet the required discharge quality. At the same time the school was faced with building constraints due to the wetlands that surround the WWTP and therefore could not increase the physical size of the plant.
