Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA/Agency) operates four water reclamation plants. Two of the treatment plants treat solids from all four plants. IEUA has used several different thermophilic processes to treat its sludge since the fall of 2000. At Regional Water Recycling Plant No. 1 (RP-1), the agency utilizes three-phase continuous feed thermophilic digestion (see Figure 1). Regional Water Recycling Plant No. 2 (RP-2) has operated its traditional two-stage digestion system as both two-stage thermophilic/mesophilic and single-stage anaerobic thermophilic digestion.
