JTAC Luncheon October 2018

Description:  The Metro Wastewater Reclamation District’s Robert W. Hite Facility treats an average of 135 million  gallons of municipal wastewater in the Denver metropolitan area, and is currently investigating process  intensification as a means to produce higher quality effluent, and address capacity and real‐estate  limitations. The recycle centrate flow from dewatering accounts for only 1% of the Hite Facility’s total  flow, yet accounts for 25% of the total ammonia load on the mainstream. Back in 2012, the District  piloted an Anita Mox™ moving bed biofilm reactor as a side‐stream treatment for the high ammonia  centrate. The results of the pilot showed that this single process could eliminate up to 70% of nitrogen  in the centrate in 30% of the volume that would otherwise be required to treat the ammonia in the  mainstream process. These results convinced the District to move forward with construction of a 1  million gallon Anita Mox™ reactor. Commencement and startup occurred in 2017, and now successfully  handles the entirety of the recycle centrate stream. Come visit the Hite Facility to see the technology in  action, and to hear the conclusions and lessons learned through the startup and continued operation of  the largest side‐stream Anita Mox™ reactor in the world.   


Directions:  This luncheon will be held at the Administration Building at the Metro Wastewater Reclamation  District’s (MWRD’s) Robert W. Hite Treatment Facility. From I‐25, exit at 58th Avenue and head east for  1 ¼ miles to the intersection with York Street. Turn left onto York Street to head north ¾ mile to the  main entrance to the Hite Facility.
