The manual is a guide for establishing the initial guidelines for the operation of a new municipal wastewater treatment plant, a new addition to an existing plant or a change in the mode of a plant's operation. Information is provided on preparing for actual treatment plant start-up, including: staffing, developing standard operating procedures; establishing procedures when construction is continued during start-up; dry and wetrun testing of equipment; on-site operator training; and safety training. Start-up procedures are described for some of the more common pretreatment and primary treatment units. Methods are also provided for specific secondary treatment processes of activated sludge, trickling filters, stabilization ponds and aerated lagoons, as well as sludge handling units and the anaerobic digestion process.
