Webcast on Oct. 15 on Implementing Low-Cost Modifications to Improve Nutrient Reduction at Wastewater Treatment Plants

EPA will hold a webcast on October 15 at 1:00pm Eastern on a recently released draft report on “Case Studies on Implementing Low-Cost Modifications to Improve Nutrient Reduction at Wastewater Treatment Plants.” The recent EPA draft report showcases a number of communities that were able to achieve better nutrient treatment at WWTPs through relatively low-cost modifications without requiring costly infrastructure upgrades. Nitrogen discharge levels in 12 case study plants were reduced by about 20 to 70%. In many cases, these facilities also reduced energy consumption and lowered operational costs. The webcast will give listeners a broad overview of the report, and will highlight two of the case studies in Crewe, VA and Victor Valley, CA.  EPA is also interested in learning of additional communities’ successes. Comments and additional case studies can be submitted by December 15, 2015 to POTWOptiNP@epa.gov.
