Background and Relevance

The objective of this project is to provide information to assist the prediction of pathogen removal performance of activated sludge plants and to enable the effect of 'upset' plant conditions on pathogen removal to be integrated into treatment plant management plans. The project comprises two tasks: (i) To conduct a literature review on pathogen and indicator reduction by activated sludge plants, including an additional report to collate and analyse Australian data sets for pathogen and indicator removal by ASPs; and (ii) using a pilot scale ASP to determine the usefulness of indicators for Cryptosporidium reduction by ASP.
