The sequencing batch reactor technology used at several wastewater treatment plants within the United States in the last few years is evaluated in this paper. These plants received additional funding as 'Innovative and Alternative' projects under the Clean Water Act of 1977 (PL 95-217) and the Wastewater Treatment Construction Grant Amendment of 1981 (PL 97-117). Visits were made to several plants as a part of this study: four plants in the United States, two in Canada, and two in Australia. This paper contains observations made at all of these plants and summarizes the experiences of the owners, operating personnel, and consulting engineers associated with these facilities.
