Pilot plant studies were conducted at the Southerly Wastewater Treatment Plant in Cleveland to evaluate the capabilities of the deep bed, dual media, ultra high rate filtration process for treating an activated sludge plant secondary effluent. The principal parameter for evaluating process efficiency was suspended solids. High removals were obtained with respect to suspended solids and to pollutants associated with suspended solids. The removal of these pollutants reduced biochemical oxygen demand, chemical oxygen demand and total phosphate values. Capital costs for a filtration process of this type are estimated to range from $1,200,000 for a 25 MGD plant to $5,400,000 for a 200 MGD plant. Total treatment costs, including capital and operating charges, are estimated to be 4.32-2.97 cents/1000 gallons for the 25 and 200 MGD plants, respectively. (Modified author abstract)
