Recently, the combination of population growth and increasingly stringent effluent quality standards has prompted the need for increased wastewater treatment capacity via upgrades and/or expansion, as well as addressing effluent quality issues for existing wastewater treatment facilities. In addition, municipalities, private industry and consulting engineering firms are among those seeking innovative practices to “green” their operations while meeting the needs of the communities they serve.
