Four (4) municipal wastewater treatment plants utilizing Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBRs) were evaluated in the Keys with respect to their nitrogen removal performances when comparing external carbon sources. For each plant, design parameters were recorded, start-up and historical data were evaluated and plant operation's staff was interviewed with the purpose of exploring key operational parameters for SBR's and the impact that adding external carbon has on nitrogen removal performance. The evaluation shows that these highly sophisticated control systems make SBRs more than capable of achieving very low levels of total nitrogen (TN) when adequate conditions for nitrification and denitrification can be maintained and external carbon is added to the system (Young, 2008).
