Problem: The existing trickling filter was not capable of treating the organic loading associated with the heavy vehicle wash operation. As a result, the system was struggling to consistently meet the NPDES Discharge Permit requirements.
Solution: bioprocessH2O supplied a two-stage bioFAS™ MBBR biological treatment process to reduce BOD at varying flow and organic loading rates.
Status/Results: The bioFAS™ MBBR System effectively removes BOD by >90% and easily meets the NPDES Discharge Permit Requirements. The system is able to operate with minimal operator attention and oversight.
