The Utilization of Molecular Tools for Process Optimization and Energy Management at Reclaimed Water Facilities
Abstract:A 22712 m3 (6 million gallon) per day partially nitrifying municipal wastewater treatment plant producing recycled water in Southern California was investigated to determine optimal operating conditions using molecular techniques. Enumeration of bacterial populations was accomplished by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) targeting the 16S rRNA region. Mixed liquor samples from the combined flow of aeration basins at the treatment plant were collected over a two month study.
