BOD, TSS & TKN Levels Reduced to Meet Discharge Requirements
Mexico - U.S. Land Port entry - California
Industry: Decentralized Wastewater Treatment
- Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Removal
- Total Suspended Solids (TSS) Removal
- TKN Removal
- Water Reuse
Problem: The United States Land Port Entry was experiencing high concentrations of BOD, TSS, and TKN in the wastewater. The effluent discharge generated by the wastewater were not meeting the requirements from the permits.
Solution: bioprocessH2O installed a bioPULSE™ Airlift Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) biological wastewater treatment system. The MBR consists of an activated sludge process and an external membrane filtration system. These systems together provide many advantages for the plant including ease of operation and high performance as well as meeting the effluent discharge requirements set forth by the Title 22 Standards.
Status/Results: bioprocessH2O's bioPULSE™ Airlift MBR System lowers the BOD, TSS, and TKN levels to meet the effluent discharge requirements. Additionally, the treated wastewater is reused for flush water, watering plants and truck washing at the facilities.
