Arsenic decontamination of drinking water has grabbed significant attentions due to its serious effects on health. A novel gravel sand filter (GSF) holding zero-valent iron plates is designed and constructed in Muzaffargarh district (Pakistan) for arsenic removal from drinking water with lower iron concentration (0.3 ppm). The GSF efficiently removed arsenic up to 99.99% with long-term stability. GSF provides 800 litters arsenic-free drinking water in 39 hours with a rate of 2.5 L/h. Tentative mechanism for arsenic removal is evaluated and described on the basis of oxidation-coagulation-adsorption processes...

Conventional free-draining bioretention systems promote nitrate production and continual 23 leaching to receiving waters. In this study, laboratory tests demonstrated the efficacy of an 24 internal water storage zone (IWSZ) to target nitrate removal via denitrification. Experimental 25 results confirmed that the carbon substrate characteristics (Willow Oak woodchip media) and the 26 hydraulic retention time of nitrified stormwater affected nitrate removal performance. A 2.6-day 27 batch treatment time reduced 3...

The recovery of water, energy, and nutrients from water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) is needed to address major global challenges, such as increasing water demand and decreasing availability of non-renewable resources. To meet these challenges, innovative technological developments must lead to increased adoption of water and resource recovery processes, while addressing stakeholder needs (e.g., innovators, practioners, regulators). A testbed network of over 90 partner facilities within the U.S. and abroad will help accelerate innovation and widespread adoption of novel processes through multi-scale testing and demonstration of technologies...

Over 60 percent of all wastewater treatmentplants in the developed countries use the activated sludgeprocess as secondary treatment system. About 50 to 85 percentof the total energy consumed in a biological wastewatertreatment plant is in aeration. The activated sludge process, themost common process, is performed in large aeration basins toprovide air for microorganisms, through biodegradation, toremove nutrients and pollutants. Very often excess factor ofsafety used in design for the air supply to meet sustained peakorganic loading and to avoid endogenous situations may lead tounsatisfactory treatment performance and even plant failure...
