High Strength Wastewater Research

A Case Study in Designing for High Strength Wastewater: Using A Holistic Approach

Presented at OOWA Conference, 2006

When designing systems for facilities that produce high strength or difficult wastewaters, a more holistic design approach should be taken: one that not only looks at the design elements and wastewater characteristics, but also accounts for the ‘usage of facility’ and O&M requirements.

Treating Higher-Strength Commercial Sewage for Disposal or Re-Use

Presented at ASAE Symposium, 2004

Challenges of high-strength sewage applications include high organic and nitrogen loading, highly variable flow rates, use of disinfectants, and untrained employees. Strategies for dealing with these challenges and operational results using the Waterloo Biofilter technology are detailed.
