Killing Two Birds with One Stone: Odor & Alkalinity Control

Evergreen Rural Water of Washington

DOUG KELLEY \ February 9, 2021

This talk discusses the concept of using the collection system as a means to extend the treatment of wastewater beyond that of the traditional treatment plant.

The discussion covers ideas to use simple chemical concepts to solve more than one problem with a single treatment.  Specifically, this presentation shares how the application of magnesium hydroxide into a force main can provide both odor and corrosion control in the collection system, while simultaneously providing sufficient influent alkalinity to maintain effective nitrification to meet a customer’s new permit limit.
