Investigating Treatment Options to Meet a 70 ug/L Phosphorus Discharge Limit for the Boise River in Idaho
This paper will show that using an alternative chemistry phosphorus can be removed consistently from wastewater to meet a low permit limitation and a key factor in preventing eutrophication of a receiving stream. Traditional methods utilizing biological treatment to remove the treatable phosphorous generally is capable of achieving a 20 percent (%) reduction but still unable to remove below 1 milligram per liter (mg/l) in the discharged wastewater. Biological treatment with chemical addition have achieved reliable results but not low level reductions. Therefore, additional or alternative treatment methods are necessary to treat below 1mg/l. That's where the ACTIFLO® Turbo treatment system comes in to achieve low level phosphorus removal.
