Description: In order to meet with wastewater effluent requirements of the NPDES permit for nitrogen, operators must understand how nitrogen enters the wastewater stream, how nitrogen is converted in the presence of typical wastewater organisms, and how to provide an environment within the wastewater treatment process that promotes the removal of toxic nitrogen by converting it to a less harmful form. This course is the first course in a series of courses on the removal of nitrogen in wastewater, using the biological processes of nitrification and denitrification.
