Use of the trickling filter/solids contact process has increased significantly since its successful demonstration at the Corvallis, Oregon Plant in 1979. The purpose of the study was to document the design features and performance of existing trickling filter/solids contact facilities and to gain more knowledge about the design and operation of the process. The studies included a total of 29 weeks of field investigations at four plants and an analysis of operating records at these and other plants. Special studies addressed several issues. The primary objectives included (1) defining the trickling filter/solids contact process; (2) assessing the effect of cosettling in the primary sedimentation tanks on primary treatment performance; (3) assessing the effect of trickling filter loading, contact tank operating parameters, secondary clarifier overflow rate, and coagulant addition on trickling filter/solids contact performance; and (4) assessing flocculation and soluble BOD removal in the aerated solids contact tank.
