U.S. EPA Publishes New, Updated Design Manual for Nutrient Removal at POTWs

U.S. EPA's Office of Research and Development has just published its new, updated design manual for the removal of nitrogen and phosphorus at municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). This manual presents an extensive state of the technology review of the engineering design and operation of nitrogen and phosphorous control technologies and techniques applied at WWTPs. It presents up to date technical guidance on the selection, design and operation of these technologies for a wide range of technical professionals involved in the regulation and control of nutrients discharged from WWTPs. Other current nutrient control issues such as emerging and innovative technologies and nutrient recovery and reuse are also presented.

The new manual (EPA/600/R-10/100) is available at U.S. EPA's Aging Water Infrastructure Research Program website at
