This paper discusses the successful implementation of non-methanol carbon sources at the Littleton Englewood Wastewater Treatment Facility utilizing TETRA® deep-bed denitrification filter and a second facility utilizing a Parkson DynaSand® upflow deep bed continuous backwash filter. This paper will describe the methodology employed to implement nonmethanol carbon sources, the modifications required to utilize non-methanol carbon sources in deep bed filter technologies, lessons learned and full scale data from each project.
