OPTIMIZATION OF NITRIFICATION / DENITRIFICATION PROCESS PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY AT THE BLUE PLAINS ADVANCED WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT
Abstract:In the Chesapeake Bay region, the focus on nutrient removal has heightened, to the extent that planning for future enhanced nutrient removal (ENR) with permit limits of 3 to 5 mg/l total nitrogen (TN) is underway. Until such time as ENR upgrades can be made, WASA has made a commitment to continuously meet the TN goals currently promulgated by the Chesapeake Bay Agreement (CBA), as detailed in Table 1, and is working to improve nutrient removal within their 370 million gallon per day (mgd) Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant (AWTP).
