Site A small water treatment works comprising of two trickle filters.
Objective To remediate blocked and ponding filters and augment site for summer seasonal loads.
Solution Following a site assessment and laboratory tests the filters were treated with a start up dose of bacteria and a BioPod® micro was installed. Within 1 month the filters had stopped ponding and the bioaugmentation continued. The site went through the summer season with the usual high loads and FOG but stayed within consent with no issues.
Notes BioPod® bioremediation has become a standard feature for this site as with a number of other small sites in this utility.
