Wastewater Treatment Plant Storm Flow Capacity
is a DOS-based program developed by Enviromega Inc. for evaluting strategies to minimize wet weather flow impacts at wastewater treatment plants. The program predicts the hydraulic capacity of a wastewater treatment plant. It was initially developed to aid operators in determining the maximum plant flow capacity and hence, minimize bypassing, but now is of interest to design consultants or government regulators as well. By incorporating a model that predicts the solids distribution in an aeration basin, for various influent feed points, with a correlation that relates sludge settling characteristics with the settler overflow rate, the plant capacity is determined. The program output displays the available modes of operation for a plant with their respective capacities, and selects the optimal mode of operation.
