Faced with rising operational costs due to increasing energy and chemical prices, as well as stricter effluent permit limits, many operators and engineers are turning to performance optimizers and controls automation to enhance treatment processes and reduce operating costs while limiting capital expenses.
In its quest to gain greater remote accessibility and increase ease of use, a progressive sewerage authority elects to think outside the traditional SCADA box.
The city of Black River Falls in Wisconsin used chemical treatment with ferric chloride (FeCl3) to achieve their effluent total phosphorus (TP) permit of 1.0 mg/l. Historically, the chemical dosing rate was manually adjusted on a daily basis based on the measured effluent TP concentration. The plant was upgraded with an OSCAR process performance optimizer control system with phosphorus controller, which uses continuous measurement of orthophosphate.

Wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) are facing many challenges. Permits on nitrogen and phosphorus in the effluent water are progressively becoming stricter in order to protect surface waters from eutrophication. At the same time, plants are required to reduce both energy and chemical consumption and are often challenged with limited time and staff. In total, they are required to do more with less. In order to meet these challenges, a plant with a Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) in Green Lake, Wisconsin was upgraded with an advanced process control system – the OSCAR process performance optimizer with NURO controller.
These days, operators are required to do more with less due to stricter nitrogen and phosphorus permits, pressure to reduce energy and chemical usage, and limited time and staff. How could these challenges be met without a plant reconfiguration?
Sanitaire - A Xylem Brand is the world leader in diffused aeration and advanced biological treatment technologies. Beginning in 1967 Sanitaire® products have been used to create innovative wastewater treatment solutions for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment applications. Sanitaire® equipment and technologies are the industry standard and have been installed in thousands of communities and industries throughout the world.
Sanitaire® aeration systems provide high oxygen transfer that results in energy efficiency and cost savings for customers. We provide extensive application support to ensure you select the right product with optimized design. Our wide selection of diffuser technologies includes the age resistant Silver Series membrane disc, the durable ceramic disc diffuser available with in-situ cleaning, as well as various coarse bubble technologies.
Our advanced Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) technology is a complete biological treatment solution for municipal wastewater treatment and select industrial treatment applications. This innovative and cost effective treatment process can be configured for Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) and the most stringent effluent requirements. In addition to traditional SBR technology, Sanitaire® recommends the superior flexibility of the ICEAS® (Intermittent Cycle Extended Aeration) design, which does not require any flow diversion and offers smaller basin volume, single basin operation and uniform basin loading. The Sanitaire® ICEAS process provides continuous inflow in a single basin, even during settle and decant phases of the operating cycle.
Sanitaire® Drum Filters offer a cost effective, low energy tertiary treatment that only requires power during the backwash cycle. Our corrosion resistant components are low maintenance and can easily be added to new or existing installations.
