Abstract:The Town of Purcellville (TOP), located in Virginia, Basham Simms wastewater facility (WWF) liquid process train was upgraded to a membrane bioreactor and brought the permitted capacity of the facility from 1.0 to 1.5 million gallons per day (mgd). Two major additions to the solids side of the process are new solids handling facilities including mechanical thickening and dewatering, and expansion of the aerobic digestion. The wastewater facility incorporates aerobic/anoxic operation of the digestion system as well as solids thickening to control digester temperature. This paper provides information related aerobic digestion process optimization and blowers energy savings.
