The manual discusses phosphorus removal methods that have been found effective and practical for use at treatment plants. All the methods included involve chemical precipitation of the phosphorus and removal of the resultant precipitate. Precipitants include salts of aluminum, iron, and lime. The practical points of addition are before the primary settler, in the aerator of an activated sludge plant, before the final settler, or in a tertiary process. Included in the discussion of each treatment method is a description of the method, pilot or full-scale performance data, equipment requirements, design parameters and costs.
