June 2014 Algae Pilot

The Upper Blackstone Water Pollution Abatement District, together with partners CDM Smith, The Lorusso Foundation and Clearas Water Recovery are piloting an algae treatment system for effluent polishing at its facility in Millbury, MA.

The treatment process has potential as a sustainable solution for clean water treatment and nutrient recovery and is under consideration along with conventional approaches for tertiary treatment to satisfy extremely low level effluent limits for nutrients.

The pilot began in June 2014.

On June 26th, the District hosted a technology showcase which was featured in an article in the Telegram and Gazette.
