Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is often a misunderstood measurement. Applying ORP to wastewater treatment is often a considered a mystery and sometimes called “black magic”. ORP measurements have immense value to the biological nutrient removal (BNR) facility operator through the selection of environmental conditions necessary to create the proper populations of biomass. Through two case studies, the value and application of ORP measurements will be documented clearly in order to promote understanding of this misunderstood measurement, and suggestions will be made for other nutrient removal processes.
