Phosphate removal by activated sludge was investigated at pilot and plant levels in the East Boulevard Sewage Treatment Plant, Pontiac, Michigan. These studies revealed erratic and low level soluble phosphorus removal, although plant design was similar to that found advantageous at the Rilling Plant in San Antonio, Texas and the Back River activated sludge plant in Baltimore, Maryland. Considering amenability, design, and operation, the East Boulevard Plant has potential for soluble phosphate removal. With minor design and operational changes, it is suitable for full-scale demonstration of orthophosphate removal. (Modified author abstract)
