NEW - High Strength Waste (1 hr)

High Strength Waste
This presentation was recorded at the 2021 NOWRA Mega-Conference.

Description:  High Strength Wastewater (HSW) is generated by numerous types of facilities such as restaurants, RV Parks, Rest Areas, and numerous other facility types. The decentralized wastewater industry must be in a position to serve these types of facilities. There is the design, construction, and maintenance of the wastewater treatment system. This presentation will focus upon the design considerations as required and provide an example and/or case study. In many states for the smaller flow systems codes do not address high strength waste and allow the usage of soil loading rates based upon residential strength waste. This leads to very short design life of HSW facilities. The shortcomings of that design rationale will be reviewed, and a discussion of best practices will be presented.
