"The timely book is a high-level overview document that provides useful guidance only to experienced decision-makers and other interested parties, such as regulatory managers, public health professionals, professors, and researchers who are able to read the roadmap.[...] it is a five-star, excellent reference book."--Lawrence K. Wang and Mu-Hao S. Wang, Professors and consultants at the Lenox Institute of Technology (June 2016 issue of Water Environment & Technology)
The Nutrient Roadmap, written to help utilities achieve the goal of a zero net impact with regard to nutrient discharges by 2040, is a first step toward accelerating the transition to smarter nutrient management, facilitating the shift from removal to recovery, and anticipating future requirements to conserve energy and reuse resources.
By reading this book, you will have a better understanding of where your utility falls on the path to becoming a facility that not only produces clean water, but recovers critical nutrients for reuse in an energy-neutral manner. You will explore key issues to consider as you move toward this goal, such as:
• environmental and community effects,
• operational effectiveness,
• economic factors,
• permit compliance,
• regulatory compliance,
• current and emerging treatment technologies, and more.
Case studies explore the innovative, cost-effective solutions employed by pioneering wastewater resource recovery facilities.
The Nutrient Roadmap acknowledges that each utility faces unique challenges and provides you with a variety of paths to follow and alternative destinations from which to choose as you embark on the road toward sustainability. 184 pages.
