It facilitates access to those design guides by providing concise information from them and enabling the reader to quickly locate additional information by following direct references. It is highly recommended that the reader does not rely solely on information. Sarah Hubbell Stephanie L. As such. Preface This handbook is intended to complement several recognized wastewater treatment design references. It is not intended to be a primer for either the inexperienced or the generalist but still a tool for them as well.
The principal authors of this publication are as follows: This publication was produced under the direction of Hannah T.
This reference is written for students and design professionals familiar with wastewater treatment concepts.

This reference is written for students and design professionals familiar with wastewater treatment concepts, the design process, plant operations, and the regulatory basis of water pollution control. It is not intended to be a primer for either the inexperienced or the generalist but still a tool for them as well, allow- ing them to quickly identify where they can find more information for unfamil- iar subjects. As such, the authors of this handbook are industry professionals who have used their experience as both students and design professionals to identify the most critical information to present in tables and figures.
It is highly recommended that the reader does not rely solely on information, such as de- sign criteria, identified by this handbook as it is not inclusive. Treated water is sometimes disinfected chemically or physically for example, by lagoons and microfiltration prior to discharge into a stream , river , bay , lagoon or wetland , or it can be used for the irrigation of a golf course, green way or park.
If it is sufficiently clean, it can also be used for groundwater recharge or agricultural purposes.

Objects commonly removed during pretreatment include trash, tree limbs, leaves, branches, and other large objects. The influent in sewage water passes through a bar screen to remove all large objects like cans, rags, sticks, plastic packets etc.
The solids are collected and later disposed in a landfill, or incinerated. Bar screens or mesh screens of varying sizes may be used to optimize solids removal. If gross solids are not removed, they become entrained in pipes and moving parts of the treatment plant, and can cause substantial damage and inefficiency in the process.
It also includes organic matter such as eggshells, bone chips, seeds, and coffee grounds. Pretreatment may include a sand or grit channel or chamber, where the velocity of the incoming sewage is adjusted to allow the settlement of sand and grit. Grit removal is necessary to 1 reduce formation of heavy deposits in aeration tanks, aerobic digesters, pipelines, channels, and conduits; 2 reduce the frequency of digester cleaning caused by excessive accumulations of grit; and 3 protect moving mechanical equipment from abrasion and accompanying abnormal wear.
The removal of grit is essential for equipment with closely machined metal surfaces such as comminutors, fine screens, centrifuges, heat exchangers, and high pressure diaphragm pumps. Grit chambers come in 3 types: horizontal grit chambers, aerated grit chambers and vortex grit chambers. Vortex type grit chambers include mechanically induced vortex, hydraulically induced vortex, and multi-tray vortex separators.
Given that traditionally, grit removal systems have been designed to remove clean inorganic particles that are greater than 0. During periods of high flow deposited grit is resuspended and the quantity of grit reaching the treatment plant increases substantially. It is, therefore important that the grit removal system not only operate efficiently during normal flow conditions but also under sustained peak flows when the greatest volume of grit reaches the plant. Equalization basins may be used for temporary storage of diurnal or wet-weather flow peaks.
Basins provide a place to temporarily hold incoming sewage during plant maintenance and a means of diluting and distributing batch discharges of toxic or high-strength waste which might otherwise inhibit biological secondary treatment including portable toilet waste, vehicle holding tanks, and septic tank pumpers. Flow equalization basins require variable discharge control, typically include provisions for bypass and cleaning, and may also include aerators.
Cleaning may be easier if the basin is downstream of screening and grit removal. Air blowers in the base of the tank may also be used to help recover the fat as a froth. Many plants, however, use primary clarifiers with mechanical surface skimmers for fat and grease removal. Primary treatment[ edit ] Primary treatment tanks in Oregon, USA In the primary sedimentation stage, sewage flows through large tanks, commonly called "pre-settling basins", "primary sedimentation tanks" or "primary clarifiers ".
Primary settling tanks are usually equipped with mechanically driven scrapers that continually drive the collected sludge towards a hopper in the base of the tank where it is pumped to sludge treatment facilities. Main article: Secondary treatment Secondary treatment is designed to substantially degrade the biological content of the sewage which are derived from human waste, food waste, soaps and detergent.
The majority of municipal plants treat the settled sewage liquor using aerobic biological processes. To be effective, the biota require both oxygen and food to live.
The bacteria and protozoa consume biodegradable soluble organic contaminants e. Secondary treatment systems are classified as fixed-film or suspended-growth systems. Fixed-film or attached growth systems include trickling filters , constructed wetlands , bio-towers, and rotating biological contactors , where the biomass grows on media and the sewage passes over its surface.
However, fixed-film systems are more able to cope with drastic changes in the amount of biological material and can provide higher removal rates for organic material and suspended solids than suspended growth systems. Tertiary treatment[ edit ] The purpose of tertiary treatment is to provide a final treatment stage to further improve the effluent quality before it is discharged to the receiving environment sea, river, lake, wet lands, ground, etc.
More than one tertiary treatment process may be used at any treatment plant. If disinfection is practised, it is always the final process. It is also called "effluent polishing.
These lagoons are highly aerobic and colonization by native macrophytes , especially reeds, is often encouraged. Small filter-feeding invertebrates such as Daphnia and species of Rotifera greatly assist in treatment by removing fine particulates. Biological nutrient removal[ edit ] Biological nutrient removal BNR is regarded by some as a type of secondary treatment process,  and by others as a tertiary or "advanced" treatment process.
Wastewater may contain high levels of the nutrients nitrogen and phosphorus. Excessive release to the environment can lead to a buildup of nutrients, called eutrophication , which can in turn encourage the overgrowth of weeds, algae , and cyanobacteria blue-green algae.
This may cause an algal bloom , a rapid growth in the population of algae. The algae numbers are unsustainable and eventually most of them die. The decomposition of the algae by bacteria uses up so much of the oxygen in the water that most or all of the animals die, which creates more organic matter for the bacteria to decompose.
In addition to causing deoxygenation, some algal species produce toxins that contaminate drinking water supplies. Different treatment processes are required to remove nitrogen and phosphorus. Nitrogen removal[ edit ] Nitrogen is removed through the biological oxidation of nitrogen from ammonia to nitrate nitrification , followed by denitrification , the reduction of nitrate to nitrogen gas.
Nitrogen gas is released to the atmosphere and thus removed from the water. Nitrification itself is a two-step aerobic process, each step facilitated by a different type of bacteria.
