Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling was applied during design of a dechlorination system at the Humber Treatment Plant (HTP). The modeling helped designers address Canadian Environment Protection Agency (CEPA) objectives and safeguard the local water resources through the best available treatment methods. Due to numerous constraints, designers applied modeling to evaluate design alternatives, which ensured that an optimal outcome was reached that met required treatment standards. This paper presents CFD modeling as a decision-making tool and illustrates how modeling benefitted the design process.

Keywords: Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Modeling; baffle plates; coefficient of variation; dechlorination; excess sulphite ion; oxidation reduction potential; residual chlorine; simulation
