  • Case Study: Flagstaff, AZ
    Case Study: Flagstaff, AZ

    In order to achieve more stringent effluent limits, the City of Flagstaff worked with Black and Veatch to upgrade the Wildcat Hill Wastewater Treatment Facility, located in northern Arizona. The facility produces a high quality effluent, as well as reclaimed water, which is distributed throughout the region to construction companies and golf courses. The remaining treated water is discharged into the Rio de Flag Creek. The plant has a design influent annual average flow of 6.0 MGD.

ABOUT WASTEWATER FILTRATION

Wastewater filtration is often part of the tertiary treatment process that involves the final removal of suspended particles from water that has passed through both the primary and secondary treatment phases and immediately precedes disinfection. As the water passes through the filter, residual suspended material and bacteria is trapped in the filter and are removed from the filtered water. Passage can be blocked by physical obstruction, biological action, adsorption, absorption or a combination of ways. Wastewater filtration is usually the final step in the solids removal process.

With regulations increasing around wastewater effluent, the use of ultrafiltration and microfiltration systems in further polishing effluent has grown. Sand or activated carbon filters can provide a media for bacterial decomposition of nutrients, converting nitrates into nitrogen gas. The rise of water reuse applications is also fueling the increasing use of filters during the final polishing stages of the wastewater treatment process.
