Wastewater Treatment Plant | Nutrient Removal System Upgrade

Wiley|Wilson recently completed a nutrient removal treatment upgrade at the Town of Tappahannock WWTP. The upgrade project successfully achieved effluent nutrient limits of 4 mg/l total nitrogen and 0.3 mg/l total phosphorus. The upgrade project converted the Town’s existing 0.8-MGD oxidation ditch activated sludge treatment system to a 5-stage Bardenpho process with enhanced biological phosphorus removal and insitu chemical addition for total phosphorus removal followed by deep bed sand filters capable of denitrication. Sustainable features of the project included conversion of the existing oxidation ditch basins to nutrient removal treatment basins, upgrades to the phosphorous treatment system to reduce chemical usage, and improved process monitoring to optimize power consumption and chemical use.
