Results from the first full year of operation at the Broad Run WRF show that a membrane bioreactor can achieve extremely low nutrient levels. Monthly total phosphorus concentrations were less than 0.1 mg/L. The 12-month total nitrogen concentration was 3.5 mg/L with monthly averages between 1.8 mg/L and 7.8 mg/L. Nitrogen removal was achieved without supplemental methanol addition.
