EPA/ September EVALUATION OF FLOW EQUALIZATION AT A SMALL WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT by Gerald W. Foess James G. Meenahan J. Michael Harju Johnson & Anderson, Inc. Pontiac, Michigan Contract No. Project Officer Ben W. Lykins, Jr. Wastewater Research Division Municipal Environmental Research Laboratory Cincinnati, . Abstract. Flow equalization and chemical neutralization and are two important components of water and wastewater treatment. Chemical neutralization is employed to balance the excess acidity or alkalinity in water, whereas flow equalization is a process of controlling flow velocity and flow by: Evaluation of flow equalization at a small wastewater treatment plant.

Flow equalization and chemical neutralization and are two important components of water and wastewater treatment. Chemical neutralization is employed to balance the excess acidity or alkalinity in. Flow equalization is not a treatment process in itself, but a technique that can be used to improve the effectiveness of both secondary and advanced wastewater treatment processes. The first step Author: Sasan Kordrostami. Handbook of Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant Operations, the intent of the author is twofold. The Þrst intent is to consolidate the information and experience in waterworks and wastewater treatment plant operations that have evolved as a result of technological advances in the Þeld, and as a result of the concepts and policies. The Biological Wastewater Treatment series is based on the book Biological Wastewater Treatment in Warm Climate Regions and on a highly acclaimed set of best selling textbooks. This international version is comprised by six textbooks giving a state-of-the-art presentation of the science and technology of biological wastewater treatment.
Flow equalization is the process of mitigating changes in flow rate through a portion of a system by providing storage to hold water when it is arriving too rapidly, and to supply additional water when it is arriving less rapidly than desired. In many water treatment systems, it is useful to implement flow equalization downstream of the plant.

Evaluation of in-line and side-line flow equalization systems Gerald W. Foess, James G. Meenahan, David Blough Johnson & Anderson, Inc., Pontiac, Mich. Several benefits have been ascribed by vari ous investigators 1_4 to the use of flow equaliza tion in wastewater treatment systems. The most notable of these benefits are the following: 1. municipal wastewater is considered an environmentally sound wastewater disposal practice compared to its direct disposal to the surface or ground water bodies [3,8]. Wastewater is a valuable source of plant nutrients and organic matter . Nevertheless, it may contain unde-sirable chemical constituents and pathogens that poseFile Size: KB.
