This workshop will address cutting edge wastewater treatment technologies - a critical topic in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. This topic is important to the local governments and utilities that operate wastewater plants in the Bay region, as well as to the state and federal agencies that regulate those plants. These plants will have to operate under strict nutrient load caps defined in the Bay Program's TMDL - now and into the future, even as the growth in the Bay watershed continues. It will be important to build these facilities with less infrastructure, operate them using less energy and fewer chemicals, all the while ensuring reliable operations and minimizing nitrogen GHG emissions.
This workshop is aimed at identifying those cutting edge technologies (focused on nitrogen) that appear to be viable options, and to begin a dialogue between practitioners, designers, and regulators on how these practices can be successfully implemented in the Bay watershed.
The information on this Calendar regarding Chesapeake Bay Program meetings and events is accurate to the best of our knowledge.
