Process models and customized operations tools were developed for four plants owned and operated by the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSDGC). The plants vary in size from 1.5 MGD to 55 MGD. Calibrated process models were developed according to commonly accepted practice through historical data review, detailed process sampling, and model setup and calibration. Customized operations tools were developed from the process models for use by operations staff for operations planning, staff training, and process optimization. MSDGC has also developed work plans and allocated resources for the maintenance and upkeep of the models moving forward. This proactive approach will ensure that the process models and the operations tools are useful to all levels of the organization for many years.
