Abstract:The recent expansion of the Traverse City (Michigan) Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant involved three project challenges: a capacity expansion of 40%, a desire by the community to adopt the principles of sustainable development for planning and decision-making, and a severely restricted existing site. These three challenges resulted in a novel process design that includes North America's largest membrane bioreactor-based facility. That facility is now constructed and in operation.
