About this book

There are millions of small wastewater treatment plants (i.e. those dealing with wastewater flows below 200 m 3 /d or serving less than 2000p.e.) worldwide. For the local water environments it is crucial that these plants are designed and operated optimally. This is the motivation of IAWA's Specialist Group on Design and Operation of Small Wastewater Treatment Plants and the conferences it has run. Small treatment plants do not receive as much attention as the larger ones simply because they influence the environment on a small scale. They are, however, no less important to those who rely upon them. Such systems must be easy to operate and meet the strictest standards. In some cases nature-based, low-technology systems such as infiltration systems, reed beds and algal ponds are the most appropriate; in other cases more sophisticated technologies are needed. Prejudices in favour of either low- or high-technology systems are unhelpful. Both types are needed and they should be well enough understood to ensure that the system chosen in any case is genuinely the most appropriate one. The selected papers in this issue cover a wide range of systems and applications.


Selected papers: Preface. Small wastewater treatment plants - a challenge to wastewater engineers (M. Boller). Evaluation of sludge dewatering reed beds: a niche for small systems (B.J. Kim, E.D. Smith). Estimation of VOC emission rate from a sequencing batch reactor (Y.C. Liao, D.J. Lee). Performance of hybrid small wastewater treatment system consisting of jet mixed separator and rotating biological contactor (Y. Watanabe, Y. Iwasaki). Organic carbon and nitrogen removal in moving-bed biofilm reactors (G. Pastorelli et al. ). An evaluation of performance and process stability of different processes for small wastewater treatment plants (H. Odegaard, A.F. Skrovseth). Nutrient removal from industrial wastewater using single tank sequencing batch reactors (J. Keller et al. ).
