"The nutrient enrichment of surface, primarily impounded, water and the associated problems of accelerated eutrophication and prolific algal growth have become a nationwide concern. Phosphorus and nitrogen are considered to be the key elements in abating eutrophication and are contributed from many sources, natural and manmade; prominent among these is the discharge of domestic and industrial wastes.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the removal of nutrients, primarily phosphorus and nitrogen, with activated alumina using a continuous-flow pilot plant system. Specific objectives were the: development and construction of appropriate bench and field-scale pilot plant units utilizing the rapid mix-sedimentation and column operational modes; evaluation of the efficiency of nutrient removal from wastewater plant effluent; and investigation of the regeneration characteristics of the spent aluminas"--Abstract, page ii.
