A pilot study which involved parallel testing of three different types of wastewater filtration technologies using the same secondary effluent was conducted at the Eugene/Springfield Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF) in Oregon. Pilot testing commenced in July 2008 and lasted approximately five months. Power consumption of the three filter technologies were evaluated in addition to filters' turbidity and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) removal performances. The results obtained for power consumption of the three filters are presented in this study.
