The main purposes of this manual are to examine situations that necessitate upgrading of existing municipal wastewater treatment plants and to discuss and evaluate the corrective actions that are required to upgrade these existing plants. Upgrading to overcome organic and hydraulic overloadings and/or to meet more stringent treatment requirements is considered. The manual emphasizes that operational improvements and modifications to existing unit operations be considered as the logical initial approach to upgrading existing treatment plants, before major expansion of existing facilities is implemented. Case histories are emphasized.
