The Grundy Center, Iowa wastewater treatment plant was designed to operate as a periodic process rather than as a conventional continuous flow activated sludge system because of the successful operation of the Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) at Culver, Ind. A series of plant modifications, completed in May 1985, enabled the system to operate as a true SBR. A full-scale study at Grundy Center was used to develop plant operation procedures that would produce a high quality effluent. The paper traces the operational history of the Grundy Center Treatment Facility from start-up through the study conducted in the summer of 1985.
