WASHINGTON, D.C.—The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the third in a series of reports on municipal wastewater collection and treatment technologies—Emerging technologies for wastewater treatment and in-plant wet weather management. The report identifies cost-effective, innovative, and embryonic technologies, as well as established technologies with innovative applications. Technical and cost data for more than 60 innovative technologies and more than 25 embryonic technologies are provided.
According to the EPA, the technologies featured in the report can provide more efficient or advanced wastewater treatment or better management of wet weather flows at the treatment plant. The new report is available online at www.epa.gov/owm/mtb/index.htm. The previous two reports—Emerging technologies for biosolids management, and Emerging technologies for conveyance systems: New installations and rehabilitation methods—are also available on the website.
