In an effort to provide a solution to wet weather flow limitations experienced by their wastewater treatment facilities, three Western New York wastewater plants have pioneered a technology new to the state. Two facilities have already completed a retrofit of their existing sandfilter to coarse monomedia, which uses larger sand particles than traditional filters, and the third plant is in currently in the process of converting its filters. The conversions have proved to be successful at reducing peak backwash flow, increasing filter run times and maintaining effluent quality. A demonstration project is also being pursued to determine if coarse monomedia has the potential to improve the treatment of primary effluent from treatment plant bypasses, overflow retention facilities or treated CSO/SSO outfalls excess capacity.
