The F. Wayne Hill Water Resources Center (FWHWRC) is an advanced wastewater treatment facility owned and operated by the Gwinnett County Department of Public Utilities (GCDPU) in Gwinnett County Georgia. A whole plant simulator of the FWHWRC was developed and implemented using the BioWin
process simulation software. The purpose of developing the whole plant simulator was to provide GCDPU with a tool for process optimization. Development of the model required detailed site specific wastewater characterization, dose-response jar testing for calibration of metal salt dosing,
calibration and verification of the model using historical data and supplemental sampling data including bioreactor profiles, and building the final model for implementation.
