Demonstration Plant Studies on Nutrient Removal from Wastewater by Primary Treatment

Massachusetts Division of Water Pollution Control, 1970-1973

PIs: Feng & DiGiano
Students: Richard Barbini, Paul Burgess, Richard Fahey, Robert Burke
project 15-51450

This was one of the first research projects to make use of the newly-constructed UMass wastewater pilot plant. Chemical clarification of raw municipal wastewater was the main focus. The investigators made use of a Permutit pilot-scale upflow clarifier at flow rates up to 12 gpm.
