ABSTRACT

 

This study was performed in a full-scale biological nutrient removal wastewater treatment plant at the Clark County Sanitation District (CCSD), Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The use of concepts of solid flux and state point analysis as an operational tool to control denitrification in clarifier of BNR systems was attempted in this study.
