When the City of Lake Alfred decided to upgrade their existing trickling filters plant, the effectiveness of the new process was critical as the effluent was to be locally reused for citrus grove irrigation. The process also needed to be compact and utilize some of the existing infrastructure.
As part of the upgrade the plant was provided with a new integrated headworks system and a USBF® process consisting of four 250,000 gpd bioreactor modules.
Before discharge, the treated effluent from the USBF® process undergoes filtration by drum microfilters and chlorine disinfection
