Before the recession, Metro Atlanta and its surrounding counties were one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. In order to reduce the impact of treatment plant discharges on its limited water supply and to offset water demands on potable water systems, they were increasingly looking at water conservation and water reuse. Paulding County was one of those fast-growing counties, consistently ranked between the 12th and 15th fastest growing counties in the United States. Wastewater treatment facilities are among the most critical to support the County's rapid population increase. With tighter effluent limits on the way and a halt on surface water discharge permits, the County had to look at alternative uses for the treated wastewater. Several technologies were evaluated, and based on this evaluation, MBR technology became the apparent leader. This paper provides an overview of the selection process, the procurement process, and the performance of four MBR systems currently operating in Paulding County.
