EPA Releases New Wastewater Treatment Technology Report

Report provides information on technology options for treatment system owners and operators

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is releasing the third in a series of reports on municipal wastewater collection and treatment technologies. The report, Emerging Technologies for Wastewater Treatment and In-Plant Wet Weather Management, provides municipal wastewater treatment system owners and operators with the latest information on emerging wastewater treatment and in-plant wet weather management technology options. It identifies cost effective, innovative and embryonic technologies as well as established technologies with innovative applications.

Technical and cost data for more than 60 innovative technologies and more than 25 embryonic technologies are provided. The technologies featured in the report can provide more efficient or advanced wastewater treatment or better management of wet weather flows at the treatment plant. The new report is available at The previous two reports, Emerging Technologies for Biosolids Management, and Emerging Technologies for Conveyance Systems: New Installations and Rehabilitation Methods, are also available on the website.
