Abstract:The LOTT Alliance Martin Way membrane bioreactor treatment facility in Lacey WA has operated for three years, during which permeate quality has exceeded Washington State Departments of Health and Ecology' standards for reclaimed water.During this time operations staff have identified several aspects operation that would benefit from a different approach during design and startup. This paper discusses these issues as well as potential improvements that would alleviate them. They include screening, inner lining of valve elbows, seed pretreatment, scum and foam elimination, wastewater characteristics, on-line sensor calibration, residue buildup on hollow fiber housing, reclaimed water distribution system, increased level of operator training.
