Donohue’s Jeremy Cramer is a presenter at the 22nd Annual CSWEA Education Seminar on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, in Madison, Wis. He is co-presenting with Autumn Fisher from the City of Fond du Lac on “Fond du Lac’s Pursuit of Nutrient Removal and Recovery.” With an increased emphasis on nutrient removal and resource recovery, many wastewater utilities are seeking options to meet regulatory permit limits while optimizing the water reclamation process.
The Fond du Lac Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility, named a 2016 Utility of the Future by the Water Environment Federation, has explored a multitude of pilot and full-scale phosphorus removal technologies/chemicals in an effort to evaluate how to meet their upcoming WQBEL of 0.04 mg/L P for final effluent discharge. In addition to exploring effluent phosphorus removal, Fond du Lac will be constructing and installing a deammonification system in 2017 and has plans for nutrient harvesting and biosolids drying in the future.
