A new video discusses how the AquaSBR System and AquaDisk Cloth Media Filters at the Key Largo, FL WWTP accomplish exceptional nutrient removal while optimizing plant operations with the IntelliPro system resulting in energy savings of $10,000 per month.

Aqua-Aerobic Systems introduces a new online video case study, Treatment Plant Optimization Provides Cost Savings and a Healthy Ecosystem that emphasizes the importance of selecting a wastewater treatment system to remove harmful nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus from the Key Largo, FL treatment plant's effluent. Removing nutrients is extremely important in Florida where some of the strictest effluent requirements are enforced due to its sensitive ecosystem and abundant tourism that depends on the waters of the Florida Keys.

The video provides actual testimonials from plant managers and operators who discuss why they chose sequencing batch reactor(SBR) technology for its advanced capabilities in nutrient removal and additional phosphorus removal with the AquaDisk cloth media filters. The plant is saving more than $10,000 a month in energy through it's plant optimization strategy with the IntelliPro control and monitoring system.

According to Margaret Blank, General Manager of Key Largo WWT District, "If the water environment here in Key Largo isn't healthy, it would definitely impact our two main industries which are commercial fishing and tourism."
