TRAVERSE CITY MEMBRANE BIOREACTOR FACILITY: THE LARGEST IN NORTH AMERICA AND A SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION FOR THE FUTURE
Abstract:Construction has begun to transform the existing Traverse City Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant into a membrane bioreactor-based facility. In addition to being notable because of the size of the plant (32,000 m3/day), the facility is significant because of the water quality leadership and environmental responsibility that has been demonstrated by the citizens of the Traverse City area. The community set voluntary limits for the quality of the effluent to be discharged from the upgraded facility, and throughout the project the citizens have promoted and supported the use of sustainable development principles for the design and future operation of their community's treatment facility. Those principles and criteria are discussed, as are the design aspects of the upgraded plant.
