Evaluate new technologies to lower nutrient releases into the Trinity Watershed from wastewater treatment plants and incorporate as appropriate.
DWU will evaluate implementation of Biological Nutrient Removal processes at Central and Southside wastewater treatment plants. These are processes that will improve water quality by removing nitrogen and phosphorus from wastewater before it is discharged into surface or ground water. DWU will evaluate the financial feasibility of implementing these nutrient recovery projects and the marketability of selling the resulting fertilizers in the local market. And implement recommendations as appropriate.
